This experience was one I will always remember. There is a very special place in my heart for the people of Kathmandu. It was amazing to me that without any type of communication devices, the people in various villages would know our Fulbright Research Team was coming as word spread that we were on our way.
Although they lacked material belongings, these people were so rich in so many other ways. I found them to be so welcoming and generous to us as we made our way around their wild and beautiful terrain.
WOLF MOUNTAIN SANCTUARY
A non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer educational organization dedicated to the preservation
and proper management of wolves in the wild and in captivity.
Tonya LittleWolf, an Apache Indian Medicine Woman and the alpha to over a dozen wolves, welcomed me into her Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. She allowed me an incredible opportunity to have hands on experience with four of her wolves and be part of the pack for a couple of days.
In time I was allowed to come in with my cameras and as I sat next to one of my favorite wolves, Apache Moon, we leaned into each other and I could feel the vibrations along his ribcage as we howled together. I love my job.
