Call Of The Wild
My friend Teysha lit up by Aplenglow coming off the summit of Ruby Peak at sunset. Her name literally means "Wolf Friend" in my tribal language, Caddo. (I am an enrolled member of the Caddo Indian Tribe of Oklahoma, although I was born and raised in Oregon.) Teysha was one quarter wolf, like I am one quarter Caddo. She was shot by an unfriendly rancher while visiting his dogs one night because she truly did have the "Call Of The Wild" in her genes, and she loved to roam and explore. And make new friends. Just like me. I miss her.
