I was driving around the Ochoco National Forest out of Prineville Oregon a couple of days ago and seen a wolf. I came around a corner and it crossed the road in front of me at about 30 yards and tritted off down the hill. Yes it was a wolf and not a coyote. I am guessing about 70 to 80 lbs and dark grey. Offically they say there are no wolves in the area but I have heard of them and now seen one myself. It is great seeing something like that out in the forest. I wish I would have had my camera ready and gotten a photo.

There aren’t a lot, but they are around. I saw one several years ago between K falls and Chemult. Talked to a forest ranger and he said that yes they are around. That was back when a pack was being tracked heading from Idaho to California.
