Meanderin' Moose

Something we don't see every day here in our part of Colorado.....in the mountains, sure, but moose are fairly atypical in the metro area of the Boulder 'burbs.
Top photo of the two moose in Boulder County is thanks to a viewer and sent to Ch 9 News This next photo wasn't taken by DH or me either, but it's the same moose we saw on our way into work yesterday morning. This was taken over by the Orchard Center near our neighborhood....(thanks again Channel 9 News)

I do love living in Colorado....

How cool is that!?! I love moose! They look a little scrawny and taller than I envisioned. Hmmm We have deer that roam around, but I'd like to see a moose! Fun stuff!

WOW, that must have been a sight to behold! Thanks for sharing such wonderful pics!

Joy: I was used to seeing them when I was stationed in Alaska, it was an everyday occurence, just never thought I'd see them here, especially that close to us!

Vickie said...

Sherri: It was the coolest thing! She was just moseyin' along....

Very cool! Years ago, I flew in one of those 6-seater planes from a small town in northern Maine to a larger regional airport. We flew over a little town and the pilot pointed out several moose going down a street below us. It was fun to see.

Did Lady K get to see them?

Vickie said...

Mary: No, Lady K didn't get to see the moose and she is really bummin'. I can at least show her these pictures, might mollify her somewhat. We will likely see them again since it seems this one solo calf was near our neighborhood.

Wow Vickie, what a thing to see on the way to work!

Vickie said...

Sarah: I know! Just the coolest site ever!
Update on the moose we saw, she was moved to Estes Park to keep her safe. She was wandering awfully close to I-25.

Mary said...

Glad to hear she'll be safer!

WOW...that must have been a site to see, they are huge!! I get excited when I see a deer so I can imagine how fun it was to see Moose! Glad to hear that the Moose is safe.

Bonnie: I'm the same way with critters. I love seeing fox, coyotes, deer, elk, everything! It was just so jaw dropping cool to see that moose that morning.
