I have a sad story to share. I was working night shifts this past weekend and one night a momma and a baby moose stopped by the office to say hello. Lisa R. and I watched the two tag-team the shrubs and then lay down next to each other in the snow and take a long nap. It was a very sweet moment. It's especially nice when the moose come around the house or the office because we usually see them on the side of the road as we drive by at 40 mph and we don't get to observe them close up and personal like that.
Well...a day later I was on my way to work and it appeared that the baby had been hit by a car and had been killed just a hundred yards or so from the office. It was really sad. Luckily I didn't see the mom anywhere when I drove by but I was still a bit heartbroken thinking about the two of them just 24 hours earlier laying down side by side in the snow.
So...I thought I would go through some of our pictures and find some to remember the good times. At last count, Lisa and I have seen over 250 moose this year and have loved every one of them.
