The reservoir is lengthy and skinny, filling the ground of a deep valley flanked via rugged, distant mountains, together with the awesome rocky summit of Hozomeen Mountain on the north finish of the reservoir. the present west winds come barreling up the valley from the place the Skagit River leaves the Cascades and drains into Puget Sound, turning north because the river valley bends the place Ross Lake starts off.

In open parts akin to this wolves usually make their kills at the fringe of the timber or simply contained in the wooded area. I regarded to the woodland area and famous a small alcove the place a circulate fed into the presently dry lake. The black undergo carcass used to be there, correct beside the treeline the place the flat valley backside became upward and the timber start above the high-water line of the reservoir.
