Another day skijoring French Gulch.
Another day encountering a moose on the trail!
This is about as good a shot we are going to get of a moose on the trail. Any closer and our safety would be much more important than getting a photo. We were cruising along the cross-country trail with moose tracks all around us when we came upon a bull moose standing between two trees and staring us down. Uh-oh, put on the brakes and wait for him to move!
|Hard to see him in this photo, but we are only about 30 yards away.|
|Zoomed in a little. Now do you see him in the center of this photo? The big|
brown object in between the two trees in the center.
|Okay, zoom once more and there you go. The brown is his body and the tan|
is the big antler basket atop his head. Hello big moose!
He stared at us for a few moments (with Max & Zorro staring right back) and then he decided to move up into the forest:
|See his big body moving into the open in the upper center of this shot as he departed from the|
two trees of the original photo and sauntered on up into the forest.
