Caption: Wolf and bear just west of Canyon junction.
Notes: I was with a couple wolf project folks in Hayden valley just after the fog lifted. At about 9:50 we saw a lone wolf headed west toward the river. We guessed it was going to the kill just west of Canyon junction. Sure enough. A short encounter before M755 retreated to the trees. A little later a coyote tried it's luck and also found the bear a little large to risk it. This was my first showdown between wolf and bear. Very exciting.
