Wolverines are back in the Washington! But their hold in the North Cascades and Rockies is fragile – only about 300 remain in the contiguous United States, mostly in the northern Rockies. It is estimated that about two-thirds of wolverine's snowbound habitat will be gone by the end of the century as the climate warms.

Chris, Barbara, and Mike hiked into the Cascades last weekend in search of the truth behind some strange rumors. We haven't heard from them since. All we found was Mike's camera. What did they find out there?
