Cool, thanks! How common are they out that direction? My g/f is miserably jonesing to get out anywhere that she can see Moose in the wild; we've run over Pend Oreille and even spent a week driving between Valdez/Anchorage/Sewar​d and only saw one, at the side of the road, doing 60 :p

They're fairly common here but this time of year access is very limited.

Nice find and photo Mel. Looks like you still have a little snow around there yet. I haven't seen a moose all winter around this area. Looks like you finally had some decent light. Keep those photos coming. I really enjoy your part of Idaho.:-)

Saw 4 more moose today but all were long distance or obscured by trees. This gal was standing in the Henry's Fork.
