The Lone Wolf He is called a "Lobo". This lone wolf was probably the pack leader, having been challenged by a younger or stronger male. The female chooses the winner. Ostracized by the rest of the pack, he's been seen quite a bit lately near Marcell. He looks healthy and does not seem too concerned about people or cars. He just seems to mind his own business. Still a wolf, he will have to avoid the pack and their territory, and survive.

More Snow, More Cold
Winter doesn't just go away. We receive about 10" of new snow followed by 30 below temps. Temps are forecasted in forties and low fifties,but we still have a lot of winter left. Drive carefully if you are visiting friends or family or just driving around. Check the National Weather Service website and click on their Hazardous Weather link for an update on current weather conditions.
The Sun Finally Moves North
The sun now sets in the southwest instead of nearly due south. The temperatures are on the increase. Hopefully, it doesn't mean we will get dumped on with a ton of snow. It is still cold.
New From Old
The old Marcell Ranger Station is being remodeled into a new Interpretative Center. It will contain a gift shop and Chippewa National Forest information and displays. They are now located temporarily in the Marcell Family Center.

Golden or Bald?
Eagles are feeding on the deer kills along the highways. Is this a Golden Eagle or a Bald Eagle? It's probably over 3 feet high, and is bigger than some mature Bald Eagles that were near it. We think it's an immature Golden Eagle, but let us know what you think (or know). firstname.lastname@example.org
