sleeping wolves and broken trams

Yesterday, Roger and I decided to head to Grouse Mountain to enjoy the skyride and take in the views of the city. The plan was well intended, except when we got there, we were told that the main tram had broken down and there was at least a two hour line-up to get on once it was fixed... the second tram was only shuttling visitors down the mountain and not up.....Argh! Ok... Plan B. There is a wolf sanctuary area there that houses three wolves... so we naturally thought, let's go there. Alas, when we got there, the furry guys had just been fed, so now were all taking their naps.... we had some wonderful view of lumps of white fur off in the distance.... sigh. We'll have to reschedule this trip when everything will be more eventful.

Shame the tram ride didn't work out, hopefully it will another day :)

What a beautiful coloured wolf :)

I love that it is curled up and you can see those eyes :) (little red riding hood :) (He! He!)

Have a great Day! Regards, T. :)
