First stop, Wolf Mountain Sanctuary! One of my bucket list to see beautiful wolves! Hmm…The sign needs to upgrade…

It was SO hot out (more than 100F). Wolf said, “Human time..(sigh) my early shift begins with these two…(sigh)”

“HEY, heeey human, where are my carrots!!??” I brought carrots (organic!) for them but I was not allowed to feed them at that time 🙁

“HEY human, got it, got it! I’ll pose…where are my carrots?” The guide repeatedly told us they are not dogs. But you know….I want one!!!

His big face didn’t fit for selfie- “Carrots?”

There was one more human friendly wolf. She is 15 years old, an oldest wolf at the sanctuary. “Oh hey, human:)”

I was so happy to meet 11 wolves. They were rescued from hunting in Alaska and from abusive owners.

“My name is Chelsie Hill and I’m 25 years old. When I was 17, I got in the car accident with a drunk driver. The SUV veered off the road and crashed into a tree, leaving me a T-10 Paraplegic. I definitely recommend Underwater Healing Photography to other survivors because it’s an experience that makes you feel calm and free. You can also do a lot more underwater physically than on land and I think it’s good for the mind, body and soul.”

“My name is Samantha Lopez, I am 22 years old. My life changed five years ago, I fell three stories from my apartment bedroom window. Swimming is what came easiest to me after my injury. I was able to do flips and laps underwater like nothing had really changed. I would definitely recommend underwater photo shoot to other spinal cord injury survivors. It’s a chance to be out of our wheelchairs and experience the freedom that water allows us to have.”

“Never give up!” They taught me a lot from this photo shoot.
