Moose on the Loose!!!

Yesterday afternoon I spotted these two Moose near the intersection of Hwy 550 and S. Mineral Creek.  If you see a bunch of cars parked on the side of the road, chances are that they’ve spotted one of these majestic animals.  Towering up to 7 feet in height at the shoulders, moose are very impressive animals and will typically hang out for hours for your viewing pleasure.  But beware, most Alaskans will tell you that they’d rather encounter a Grizzly than a Moose as the former is much less prone to charge.
