We ran into this guy…
I mean, we really about ran into him. The trail went right beside him and it was very steep and bushy, no way to go up higher to get around him. Moose scare me a bit more than bears. Thankfully, it was not a mama with a calf. We all scurried quickly and quietly past this guy (9 kids along with my husband, my folks and myself) . The little kids kept on going up the trail while a few of us stayed behind and definitely kept our distance from him and took a couple of quick shots…
Not a very good picture above but I love the duck swimming next to him!
These closer ones were taken first and the more distant ones where taken later from across the lake.
