Well, this wasn’t Gandalf but I wasn’t going to push my luck and try to go around. 😉 One for #MooseMonday, taken in early August of last year and a shot I haven’t shared before.
My daughter and I had ventured out from camp in Arapaho National Forest and were having a fantastic morning viewing moose. We had been focused on a different bull when it suddenly stopped grazing, picked up its head and cast its eyes toward a nearby stand of trees.
We didn’t see anything initially but soon, this big boy emerged. He stopped at the edge of the road and cast a serious glance at the other bull.
I had hoped there might be some sparring on tap but both bulls never took it any further than giving each other dirty looks. Haha. That morning I think we ended up with a tally of 11 moose total – probably our most plentiful count for a single morning.
