Moose Sighting

These photos were taken by my friend Anthony Morabito near Animas Forks, the ghost town just up the road from Silverton. I had no idea there were moose this close to us! There were some moose sightings up Lizard Head Pass a couple of years ago, and also over in the Lake City and Creede area. Hopefully I'll see them sometime!

Moose are rather strange looking animals. What a thrill to see them in the wild.

Wow - I love that second photo - really shows how gangly they are! Moose are becoming prevalent in Summit County. I had two in my yard about a week ago!

Very nice moose sightings and photos.

They may be ungainly but I think they have their very own cool thing going on. I just wish they were a native animal here in Yorkshire.
