Bolting, cat-like, from the brush, Bullwinkle here, with gnashing teeth, stood between my wife and I as we were driving home yesterday from Rangely. I know this photo is a little blurry, but if you look closely at the top of the road just to the right of the yellow lines you will see the frightful beast.

Linda was so excited that she leapt from the truck and fired off several photos, all of which are a bit blurry. I think this adds a bit of mystique, in an Area 51 sort of way.

It's our first Maine moose sighting. And, of course, I couldn't help but think of the moose meat summer sausage I had earlier this year. Mmmmmm!


  1. ho hum...typical out of staters...moose sightings are a dime a dozen...just wait until a 2000 pound moose darts in front of your car and you veer off into the woods to save your life...let's see how excited Linda is when THAT happens...Jim

  2. That sounds harrowing. Of course, I have my doubts about the word "darts." My moose friend looked more like a knock-kneed junior high girl with pigtails and braces.
