The hubs and I were able to get away this past weekend for an overnight stay at a nearby lake. Grant it, there is still snow on the ground so we didn't any boating... or fishing... or basking on the beach. But it was a nice relaxing weekend. Well, relaxing except for the momma moose and baby moose we met on one of the trails! We were walking in the afternoon on one of the trails. We were the only ones in the park so it was very quiet. All of a sudden I noticed a small moose in front of us on the trail. We stopped and I took a picture.
Then out of nowhere momma moose emerged from the woods and stood guard in front of baby. It was a scary moment because she really startled us. If you have never seen a moose up close they are huge! At least 3 times the size of a horse. I wish these pictures were zoomed in a little more but we were testing our new SLR camera this weekend and I am of course a beginner.
Luckily, everything was ok. We were kind of worried about the pup and what he would do but he was just as frozen as us. We stepped off the trail and moved around mom and babe and everything was fine. The rest of the weekend was much less eventful.
