Wednesday evening took a bit of a stroll near Gooses Rock. It has been a trying week so far and the best medicine for that is to get out, get away, and get some peace.
How can you not find peace when this is your view?
Just a small pond high in the mountains. I just sat myself down on a rock to take it all in. And then...
And then this young male moose came through the tall grass and cattails.
At this point he sees me.
What a cutie. He was only about 10-12 yards away. Even though I was so close he did not seem to mind. I just sat on my rock and he got a drink and nibbled on the tender reeds. We can co-exist when we respect one another. Good lesson in life. Then later on, at another spot...
The big guy.
Check out his huge waddle, it touches the water.
I thought he had an injured eye. But upon closer look it is just the felt from his antlers that he had been rubbing off, that's why his antlers are a bit bloody.
More to come later with more moose, deer, turkeys and other critters. Much needed peace was found. The rest of the week will be a breeze.
