· *A new Wolf Pack, The Wenatchee Pack, seems to be making home in greater Cle Elum area these days. The area of last summer’s fire (Taylor Bridge) then going north toward Swauk Pass/Blewett Pass is where you might spot them. A healthy Elk herd and Deer as well is likely why they are there. We now have 10 Wolf Packs statewide.

With the pressure off Seattle, watch was happens now in the coming weeks and months.
