    Default Bucket List!

    IMG_7007-2.JPGOK we have been to CO four times since fall to ski and hike and whatever. My dream has been to see a moose. Today while snowshoeing we saw THREE. So excited. I would have great photos but hubby said to get the hell away from them. (They were really big).
    IMG_1212.JPG

    We got the closeup of the calf. When she/he left the trail we saw mom and sibling. AMAZING. Mom was about as big as a car.

    They are not normally aggressive except during mating season -- and that's good. But they are huge! I would hate to hit one with my vehicle.

    Kudos on the Bucket List; mine actually has some random things I have yet to do!

    That is great!
    Yes, they are big (so I am told, I have only seen footprints so far ), but I would love to see them!
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Such great photos!! happy for you you got one of your wish from your list!!

    I also had a similar wish, in an other smaller scale. When we worked in DC, the house we rented had an open backyard on a forest with a little lake. I was always amazed to see many animals (chipmunks, squirrels,skunk) coming near the house even on our deck! and one winter, many deers, a whole big family with three babies stayed for hours in the snow. I never had the opportunity to see many of those before, so was happy to get next to them and take many photos. Little did I know my husband was playing with my camera a few days before and changed all my adjustments. So all pictures were blue...I was so mad! of course I can change the color with photoshop...but still...
