I actually thought this was a sled dog trotting down the Parks Highway between Healy and Cantwell. When I realized it was a wolf, I scrambled for my camera and managed a few quick shots before it darted back into the woods. A car pulled over behind me, and we both watched to see if it would come back. The car behind me took off before me, and while passing me, the woman gave me a big smile, as if to say, "Do you believe we just saw that?!"
This was definitely an Alaskan first for me!
