|Moose #1 in town|
|Moose #2 at cabin|
During my trip to Alaska we saw at least one everyday we were there. They are munching on new grass. It was a long winter for them. Alaska set a record for snowfall this year at about 315 inches of snow. That is a lot of snow. I understand that the moose would walk up on top of the piles of snow (from cleaning roadways, drives, and etc) and munch on the trees, so the grass must taste good. Nearly every moose I saw was eating grass like there was no tomorrow. As you drive down the roadways you can see where the trees have been eaten away. These animals are large, very large, and what I have been told very mean, they will kill you. In other words you cannot give them a hug. The first picture I took of one was walking around the town of Kenai. This girl had to be a young one. It was pretty small. Even being small I would not have wanted to run into her in a dark alley. Moose #2 came to visit at the cabin. He was thirsty and drank a lot from the lake.

I have many pictures of moose. If I can figure out how to do a "flicker" I will add it to the bottom of my blog.
