The Junction Butte Pack's den was visibe right from Slough Creek's main road. Every morning at dawn the pups would come out and play. Amazing! In general, Slough Creek was an amazing location for wildlife.

We spent some early morning quality time with wolf spotters here. We saw a heard of Big Horn Sheep and met a couple of Wolf pups and their parents. With a spotting scope you can see the entry of the wolves den here.
