Did you see that Moose?

I want to get a photograph of a moose. In fact I wanted to get a photo of a moose when we were in Newfoundland last year and road signs were warning us of the dangers of moose related accidents. I saw a couple but not at a time when I had my camera in hand.

A couple of nights ago we stayed at a nice campground on highway 20 just east of the Cascade Mountains. While I was fixing supper a moose was bellowing a ways up the stream. My heart skipped a beat – must be something about the raw sex of a horny moose. He continued to bellow throughout the evening and well past the time I wanted to sleep. By then my attraction was turning to irritation.

In the morning I walked over by the stream and heard him and his horny song right across the stream from where I was standing. I looked real hard, hoping he would come out for a drink. Cascades 009

Do you see him? Look real hard. Neither did I. Guess we will just have to use our IMAGINATIONS until I get my photograph of a real one. In the meantime, this will be my contribution to Frizz’s walk through the alphabet. This week is the letter “i” – which is for imagination.

    • That is right where I thought he was, but I guess your eyes are better than mine. I know you have the variety right! 😀 I really did hear him, though.

  1. We have made numerous trip to Vermont and there are signs everywhere warning you about Moose but we have never seen a moose in Vermont. We did see one in New Hampshire and took a picture but since it was almost dark – all that came out was his eye. Last year we went to Maine and went on a Moose safari and saw two moose and got some pictures. Then a few days later we went to Baxter State Park and on the way driving out of the park a moose walked across the road. We had to quick scramble for the camera but did manage to get a couple of photos before he wandered off. So hang in there – you will get your moose shot one day
