Timberwolf Sighting

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Back in early August, our guests in Cottage #7 had an extraordinarily rare encounter on their drive back from town on County Road #7, only a couple miles away from Thunder Lake Lodge.  One person in the car pointed out the gray wolf on the side of the road.  So they got as close as they thought they could get to take a picture.  After taking the first photo, they decided to try get a little closer and get an even better photo.  Amazingly, the wolf did not run as they approached closer.  Apparently, the wolf didn’t really pay much attention to them.  I still have yet to see a wolf myself, although I know there are plenty in the area as our deer hunters in November see them quite frequently.

Thanks for the photos, Dolan family!

It’s hard to believe that summer is over already, but the weather was fantastic for the participants in the final Thunder Lake Lodge Kids Fishing Contest of 2009.  The contest commenced last Thursday with 7 contestants showing off their angling skills for one last time off the docks.  Here are the results:

Jacob from Cottage #7 caught the biggest fish of the day.  It was a 7  1/2″ rock bass.

Lyndsey A. from Cottage #7 caught the smallest fish, which was a 4  1/2″ sunfish.

Sydney from Cottage #10 caught the most fish.  She caught 7 total fish.

Congratulations to all the contestants who participated throughout the summer.  We look forward to to having all of you in next year’s contests.
