Friends in high places.

Winter 2009 was another well-orchestrated issue, and "Wolves, Moose, Researchers, and Me" strummed a special chord. Twenty-plus years ago, a friend pulled me into the world of Isle Royale wolves and Roll Peterson. From there, I joined an Earthwatch expedition in tiny Ovindoli, Italy, high in the Apennine Mountains, dragging my younger son with me. The wolves we studied there soon became our mountain side companions, though at a distance, of course. Our trip leader taught us to howl across the valley, and when the wolves answered ... well, that moment still resonates whenever I experience a mountaintop high. And with Nevada Barr, I lean my head back and howl.
