While hiking…

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.IMG_3835 P1020273 P1020284 P1020365 P1020389

    You reminded me of an incident my sister had with a moose coming out of the outhouse at Rocky Mountain National Park. She screamed so loud the moose ran away.
