Colorado Moose Walking

Still on the subject of moose.  This time at our mountain cabin in Colorado.  We have seen this bull moose many times, but never so close as in the video.  Here is our first look at him, as a juvenile.  Those coltish legs! bull moose as juvenile

We have encountered him several times since.  He always stands stock still, as do we.  He knows we will not approach.  Eventually he ambles off, although one time at dusk he lay down for the night as we watched.  We hadn’t seen him for a year but saw him again in October.  We were walking the dogs, making lots of noise.  On the way back, there he was, very close.
Here are some recent photos and a video.  You can hear my dogs beginning to bark and whine as the wind shifts and they smell him.  Long noses went up in the air, back and forth like searchlights.

    I love these shots and the video – they are such strange creatures, aren’t they, Monica? Those autumn leaves shimmering down in the video are so beautiful, too. It is so warm and humid here at the moment, I can’t even imagine the cold.

    Warm and humid! Until this week, we have been unseasonably warm. But never humid. Sounds so good for the skin, Bluebee. Warm and humid holidays don’t seem real to us in the far North. Hope yours are very special.
