First Moose 2013

You know about our moose obsession, right? We love to to go moose “hunting”, especially in northern New Hampshire. The “hunting” is just in hopes of snapping a photo or two.  Whenever relatives visit, we trek up there in search of the gangly critters. We are usually successful, seeing as many as 27 moose in one trip.

This first jaunt to Pittsburg, NH area was to try to show a grandson’s girlfriend her first moose ever. While taking a leisurely hike, she suddenly asks, “Is that a moose?” Sure enough, a big black bull moose ran out of the woods and kept right on moving down the road away from us. We were so stunned, only the girlfriend had her wits about her to get a photo. Success! We ended up seeing 2 more on the way home. Here’s one of them –
