Playing Peek a Boo with a Moose
The first day we arrived in Homer, Alaska my wife and I went for a short hike in a nearby park to see if we could find a moose in the swampland. After about an hour, I heard some branches crackle to my right and turned to get this view of a Moose. I quickly scanned the area to see if there were any calves around but I didn’t see any. I called to my wife who was behind me on the trail and told her she was about to get a visitor. A few seconds later the moose calmly walked by her and proceeded toward the swamp. It was a nice way to begin the wildlife part of our trip and it turned out to one of only a few moose that we saw during our trip. It was an unexpectedly close encounter in a densely wooded area but one that stayed calm and quiet as we all went our own way…..
