Moosing on the Cake

All week long we were on a search. A search for the moose. We wanted so badly to see one, to be able to check it off our list but darn it, it stayed away. Until...

the last day of the trip as we're driving off Flat Creek Ranch. It takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to get down to Jackson Hole. 1 hour and 15 minutes of going 5-10 mph in a Suburban. 1 hour and 15 minutes of being tossed from side to side of said Suburban. Picture yourself in a barrel and being pushed down a rocky, steep mountain. Yep, that's how it felt. But it was worth it. We were driving around a bend in the road when we saw it. From a distance at first but I knew, KNEW it had to be our moose and guess what folks? He was amazing!

  1. When I enlarge the picture, I can see that he is standing in the water. Beautiful animal! It was worth the wait, wasn't it?

  2. Brooks, it was absolutely worth the wait. And what a way to begin our last day in Wyoming! Just got home a few hours ago. Talk about culture shock. Still in awe of all the wild beauty and looking for a way to keep it alive in my heart.
