Photos of Galena Pack near Stanley
December 22, 2006
Story By Ralph Maughan, Photos By Lynne Stone

Like last May, the Galena Pack has come down out of the White Cloud Mountains in the vicinity of Stanley, ID.

Lynne Stone took the photos below, taken on Dec. 21. Some happy folks from Stanley were standing in the bad weather watching as well as some employees of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area as 3 members of the Galena Pack, probably including the alpha male, ate the elk they had brought down.

Stone said the wildlife is abundunt if you can brave the cold. It is has been down to -30 F. Also scavenging the kill were ravens, of course, and a golden eagle, a bald eagle, and a wary coyote.

There are two motels in Stanley and she suggests trying to stay at Jerry’s Store and Cabins in Lower Stanley because you might see wolves from your window.

B277 takes a chunk of meat and leaves. The larger wolf stands over the kill and eyes the waiting ravens. Lynne Stone photo.
