File - This May 8, 2012 file photo provided by the California Department of Fish and Game shows OR-7, the Oregon wolf that has trekked across two states looking for a mate, on a sagebrush hillside in Modoc County, Calif. An expedition is gearing up to hike and bike along the 1,200-mile trail of wandering wolf OR-7 as he trekked across Oregon into Northern California, crossing territory that hasn’t seen his kind in nearly a century as he looked for a mate. They hope the journey, as told in traditional storytelling, multimedia blogging, and a documentary film, will offer new insights into what the spread of wolves across the West means for the people who live here.
