Second Moose Hunt

A few weeks ago we went to Estes Park and saw a big bull Moose (below) that was in a field off the side of the road. It was the first time I had ever seen a real, live, moose and I was thrilled beyond words. However, it was too far away for me to capture a good picture of it, and I decided right then and there that I had to find another moose that would be closer to the side of the road so I could get a better picture.

Today, we got up at 4:30 A.M. It was dark, cold, and pouring down rain, and I began to wonder why I ever hatched this big plan to begin with…, but we jumped out of bed, got dressed very quickly, and headed out the door, without breakfast or anything, and drove to the Grand Lake area once again in search of more moose.

And, BINGO, we scored big time when we saw this young bull moose within 100 feet of the road we were on! I jumped out of that car and started snapping pictures as fast as I could..

And, to put the topping of our cake, we also saw this cow moose (center of picture) that was about 75 yards out in the same field as the young bull moose. What a thrill to see two moose in the same area at the same time,

and, the even bigger thrill for me, was that the young bull moose was so close to us I was able to get some good, close up pictures.

And, we had fun, fun, fun, until the moose walked away… :):)

Now, I will be able to leave this area a happy woman. My mission to see moose up close, and get some decent pictures of them is completed. I’m ready to move on down the road to Fruita, Colorado next week and see what fun opportunities await us there…

Stay Tuned!

      Yes in deed! I do believe we have to set our intentions and goals everyday, and believe they are actually going to happen. I also believe intentions and goals don’t just happen, we have to do our part,and really believe,and also know that part of obtaining any intention or goal is the journey towards it and not just the end result. Love and miss you! XoXo

    We had a great time this morning, that would be an early morning, when we first started into the park I was not sure we were going to find the elusive moose, because I didn’t see any elk and I figured that all of the animals were hunkered down deep in the forest.
    Thankfully we finally saw the moose in the field close to the road, it made my morning also.

      It was the best day ever here in the Kremmling area, even if it did require the 4:30 A.M. wake up call, getting out in the cold, dark, rainy morning etc. but now we can move on knowing we met our goal of seeing moose up close and personal! Love you. XoXo
