While at the beach last week and doing a day trip to Charleston, SC, along Highway 17, we decided to stop at the Sewee Environmental Education Center. We are so glad, after driving past the place many times, we decided to take the opportunity to stop. Why? We got to meet this lady:
Look carefully in the background of the picture above, and you will notice a second wolf passing in the picture. This was the only appearance of that second wolf and it was very fleeting.
This majestic creature can only be found in the wild in one place – Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina. Originally, the Red Wolf was found throughout the Southeastern U.S., into the mid-Atlantic states, and into central-Southern US.
These wolves are captive, but are part of the Wildlife Services breeding program to help strengthen the population at Alligator River. We were able to sit quietly and watch her for quite some time.
This last picture was the only one taken without a zoom lens. After we had sat quietly for a while, she finally ventured over within a few feet of us to “sniff” us out. Stunning.
P.S. – We mentioned yesterday, but will repeat our message. KB has some stunning pictures and VIDEO of a mountain lion. We highly recommend going and viewing.

A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
We Had A Little Snow
Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
That must have been amazing to see her like that, and for her to come so close.
She is so beautiful!!! 🙂
Just gorgeous. We don’t see them anywhere up this way. Caught that KB post, it was amazing…
She is a pretty girl!
Absolutely beautiful! I just love wolves, and have often been told I am part wolf! You pups are lucky you got to meet a wolf. I will have to convince my human to take me to that park so I can meet and play with the wolves!
I love the photo of the “fleeting wolf” – it has a supernatural Spirit to it!
That wolfie looks very cool, did you make friends?
PS I love your header picture!
Wow, she’s sooooo beautiful!
Wolves are awesome! This one looks like a browner and less floofy version of you guys!
Gorgeous, totally agreed! Can i ask a stupid question?? How did you know the one in the first pic is a “she”?
A beauty and really neat to watch.
Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
It’s sad that they have dwindled down so much.
I don’t know about the up close and personal photo, especially when you told us there was no zoom action involved. Wow, while I’m posting about “pretend wolves” you saw the real thing!
BTW I did check out KB’s blog. Thanks!
I think she would be khwite the pawesome addition to The Red Team!

We have to agree, KB’s lion pictures are awesome! I’m glad she didn’t meet him up close and personal!
She is a beauty – wow!! Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.
We have been following KB’s blog for a while now, she is an amazing lady too. We have seen the stills of the mountain lion, but we still need to catch her latest video.

What a fantastic looking wolf! We saw some in Dublin Zoo the other day but they were nowhere near as attactive as that fantastic red wolf! Great photos you took!
What a beautiful animal. We visited a Wolf Conservation Center once and it was quite an experience. Perhaps I’ll blog about it one day when I’m short on blog fodder.
It’s sad that these magnificent animals have had their habitats reduced to almost nothing. I hope they can make a comeback.
