    Nice moose pics Mark. Come back in the Sept., they look so much better then. Moose are nice to see but I hate seeing moose driving at night. Just last night I came within feet of one. Talk about making your heart race!
    Keep up the good work.

  6. Dang... Wish I'd seen one :( 

    Doesn't matter if it's a Moose or a small deer, they'll ruin your night. I get a ton of them on the way to work here all the time. Makes you really remember to keep an eye out!
  7. great job! I know EXACTLY where that was!

    Thanks Scotty - I also would hate to see one at night or even during they day - I saw how quickly they can cross a road - I have not yet PP'ed the remains of a car that hit one. I have an urge to come back in the fall that is worse than LL.

    I agree - the big ones can ruin a vehicle and the littles can scare you and when you try to avoid them, who knows what you might hit.

    Thanks Dave - maybe we can make a Cafe trip some time!
  9. I forgot to mention... thanks for the location, I'm going to remember that park next time I go up there!

    Good shots. I really like the last one with the rich green colors.

    Wow, I am glad you got to see one in the wild. I went to Alaska and hoped to see one, the receptionist said every night she saw one when passed a particular intersection at 11:30pm, so out we went for a few nights, a twenty minute drive each way, but we had to go to the zoo to see one :)

    Don't forget to take your hiking boots and fly dope - we used 30% and 100% deet.

    Thank you.

    Sorry to hear about your moose - I did not know what to really expect as far as how often we would see them. We hit several areas that we were told were 'hot' spots but they were cold as ice. I hope you were able to get some Bald Eagle shots while in Alaska - we are actually looking to see if we can use our frequent flier miles to go to Alaska.
