It reads: “Romeo 2003-2009. The spirit of Juneau’s friendly black wolf lives on in this wild place.”
And the beautiful monument sits on the side of a stone. Tourists can frequently be seen taking their photo with the plaque, even though they never knew him. It’s only fitting, because he would have been as kind to them as he was to everyone else that he met while he lived in the area.
The plaque serves as a reminder that this community has a particularly strong connection with the wild, and that’s something that they take a lot of pride in.
