A Moose Story



As we were driving along  a forested road, this horse-sized woodland creature suddenly loomed on the shoulder of the highway beside us, having emerged from the forest.I momentarily panicked trying to ready my camera to take its picture, telling myself, "I must get its picture!!" The Moose unhurriedly walked across the highway, then stopped, turned its head, and stared at us, as if to say:"You are intruding on my highway!"


Then as  quickly as it had appeared, it moved and merged back into the forest. We waited within our vehicle for a few moments, giving it time to stay reassuring ourselves that it had moved on.
Then we continued on our way with wary watchfulness alerted to the possibilities of other wild creatures perhaps  crossing in our vehicle's path.

I think I have only seen a moose once before. I am glad they aren't down here; I have enought trouble avoiding deer crossing the road.

I think Ruth is right- it paused long enough for you to take another photo!
