Following the Wolverine with a camera

Twenty-odd years ago, while walking the John Muir Trail, I glimpsed a flash of black and white running across a snowfield at about 11k feet. The creature looked about the size of a small dog, and I *think* it was a wolverine. The other likely possibility at that elevation would be a marmot, but marmots are brown, and this creature was definitely had white and black colorings. But he was gone in a flash, and I’ll never know for sure.

Photographer Steven Gnam, on the other hand, has been tracking wolverines in the mountains of the West for Patagonia, and has posted some remarkable images of this elusive and gorgeous creature. Worth savoring.
