high mountain ridge in Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

The place we call Wolverine in black and white

It’s really a butte, a great high plateau above the Chitistone River in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. but everyone calls it Wolverine. And, cool enough, saw my first ever wolverine right over that saddle in the foreground. For about 3 seconds before he was gone. Long gone, and now a distant memory, but certainly one that I’ll never forget.

High escarpment or ridge we call “Wolverine” above the Chitistone River. The Chitistone River divides the Wrangell Mountains to the north from the University Range, part of the St. Elias Mountains, to the south. By definition, it’s the hyphen in the name of the park; Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska
