Yellowstone National Park: Junction Butte Pack Wolves 1000 Piece Puzzle
Photographer: Joe Wiggins
Skill Level: Challenging
I have received many requests for Wolf puzzles, And our resident Photographer Joe Wiggins happened to luck out and encounter this pack several days in a row last winter during his anniversary visit to the park in February.
The Junction Butte Pack transcends Yellowstone’s northern range and is the most viewed wolf pack in the world. The Junction Butte Pack formed in 2012 in the northern section of the park. They are the most observed pack in Yellowstone because they den within view of the Northeast Entrance Road and the road to Slough Creek Campground, providing thousands of visitor’s daily views. The pack had eight pups in 2021. Yellowstone wolves in the northern range spend an estimated 5% of the time outside the park, usually in late fall. Sadly, Yellowstone National Park wolf biologists report that the park’s Junction Butte Pack (27 wolves) lost three wolves to Montana hunters during the first week of Montana’s wolf hunting season.
All of our 1000 Piece puzzles measure 27.6 x 19.7 inches when completed. They are cut with an irregular piece shape to aid and strenthen your assembly quest, as well as produce an interlock so tight you can pick it up and flip it over (gently) without losing a piece. (Watch this and see!) They are manufactured using 100% Recycled Grade A chipboard, 1/16 inch thick resulting in sturdy, durable pieces that wont bend or break easily, and mated to a premium Matte finished print. They are then cut using 2 different presses, each going a different direction. This ensures your pieces are always fully cut, not stuck together so you have to tear them apart, damaging your pieces. (Click here for brief video) The end result is a puzzle worthy of being framed and hung in your living room! And we are working on a plan to offer handmade (right in our warehouse) wooden frames in a variety of colors and styles so you can do just that!
