When in Alaska, one is always on the alert for moose. They are huge creatures and it is best to avoid a conflict with them as they usually win. Especially dangerous when driving on dark roads (which I've not yet experienced due to the long days of light thus far). But I keep an eagle eye out to catch any glimpse of the large but shy creatures. It's quite thrilling.
This is the one that didn't get away. He is stuffed, and I don't mean with fresh leaves.
This moose was peacefully taking a drink along the road and didn't mind one bit that we stopped the car for a photo op.
We spotted this moose along the road to the hot springs. She has a baby in the grass along the riverbank. All we could really see were the baby's ears twitching but she kept close watch.
And then I discovered this moose living in the parking lot of my apartment!
Wow. Lucky find. Looks a bit like a cousin to Bullwinkle.
