Wolf Tracks-Canadian Rockies

It’s Spring time….one of my favorite times of year The smell of the air, the warmth of the sun, the sound of melt water gurgling…..very special.

I was out for a walk today past the Banff Springs golf course. Nice place to go as the road is closed and not many visitors go there. I was out for some exercise and time to think of what the subject matter would be for my next painting.

I was walking down the snow-covered road which was in melt mode as the temp was 6c. Just as I came around a blind corner, I looked down and stopped suddenly……..there in the snow melt was a fresh track. It’s interesting, as the past few months I have been meditating a lot and my senses are getting sharper. Along the walk, I would stop occasionally, sensing energy coming from the surrounding forest and the mountains. I had come across fresh wolf tracks.

I put a toonie beside the track and took a picture. When I got home I did a measurement of the track and the toonie....the track was around 4.5 inches long. The center of my palm to the end of my fingertips is the same length. This was a big wolf.

As I continued walking down the road the tracks wove in and out of the trees. Every 50 yards or so the tracks would stop at a tree where the wolf marked his territory with urine. As I continued along my senses were elevating, getting sharper with every step. All of a sudden there were no tracks, then after half a kilometer, there were two sets of tracks side by side. I stopped, listened to the forest, sensing a very strong energy. 

Looking down the road, it was as if I was looking down a tunnel of trees. My spirit guide at that time gave me the sense to not go forward. I paused, closed my eyes and breathed deeply. I then turned around.
On the walk back I would stop to scan the forest behind me, sensing all the energy that was around.
It is Spring time....soon the bears will be joining the wolves in the valley.
