moose sighting

Last night we were coming home from checking the mail. Our mailbox is 2 miles from our house, and we were about halfway back.

We were just driving along through the darkness when suddenly we spotted two large creatures strolling down the road in front of us. David and I gawked at them for a minute, then we gasped, “MOOSE!”

They were a mother and a very large baby, and they really didn’t seem to care at all that we were there. They lumbered slowly into the woods and stood there, chewing branches and stripping bark from trees.

They were so big and humpy-looking, with giant ears and big noses. It would have been cool to see a bull, but maybe next time.

I am totally thrilled that we saw moose–and less than a mile from our house!

    AWESOME! Sam & I have been on the look out for moose & bears so many times in CO & have yet to see either. Next time you see Sam you should ask him to do his moose call for you šŸ™‚
