WolfQuest 2.7 and WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition (Early Access for PC/Mac)
Sagebrush steppe, forest, and riparian
WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition's game map for Amethyst Mountain is 7km by 7km (49 square kilometers), ranging from the Lamar River to the summit of Amethyst Mountain, the Northern Range's highest peak at 9,609 feet (2,929 meters). It is here that you first hone your hunting skills and find another dispersal wolf to start a pack.
Riparian habitat, thick with willow, and a few stands cottonwood, is found along the Lamar River and its tributaries. Up the slopes, mixed forest gives way to sagebrush steppe: open grassland dominated by sagebrush, covering Specimen Ridge and the summit. Douglas fir thrives on the cool, north-facing slopes of the ridge, while mixed conifers including lodgepole pine, Englemann spruce, and subalpine fir grow at higher elevations.
Autumn to early winter
The Amethyst Mountain map is set in autumn and early winter so snow begins to fall. The grasses and aspen are golden and the sagebrush has faded to silvery gray. Elk herds are still grazing on autumn grasses before migrating to lower elevations for the deep winter. The autumn rut is in full swing so expect to see sparring ungulate bulls!
