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…..

Not sure who was more surprised....

  2. It’s great how you can see the fur on/in the ears in this shot.
    Full disclosure: I think mooses are super-cute to start with!
