Caption: Unkown wolf traveling near Canyon Village
Notes: I was driving from Norris to Canyon Village to check-in for the night. About 1/2mi before reaching the stop signs at Canyon Village intersection, I spotted this wolf to my south. I could tell it wanted to cross the road, so I started backing up. By this time someone was behind me, and 1 other car going the opposite direction had stopped about 150-200ft ahead of me. The wold had plenty of room to cross, and was very calm. I believe it could hear my camera's shutter clicking, and as it was going towards the road it was heading directly to my car. It passed about 3ft in front of my car, stopped just off the other side of the road, stared at me for a few seconds, and then slowly trotted off to the north in the area between Cascade Lake and Canyon Campground.
