Hiking at Upper Buck Lake in the NOrthern Lemhi mountains. Was fishing when two friends and I saw the wolverine come down to get a drink. It saw us and took off. It then came back in the same spot about 20 minutes later. This time it stayed for a little longer, with enough time to get pictures.

All three of us are very aware of what wolverines look like. Been studying since I was a kid!
