    Hello – have not seen you for awhile. What a great picture. Wyoming is a beautiful place – I have been there many times.

    • Good morning, Peggy. You haven’t heard from me because I was in Wyoming for almost 3 1/2 weeks, enjoying the mountains, horses, much cooler temperatures!, and, for a week, the company of our two daughters. I hope all’s well with you and yours.

        All is well here Janet. I knew you were in Wyoming. I have traveled all over Wyoming several times in my life. My brother use to live in Green River. I know you enjoyed seeing your daughters and exploring the great mountains in that area.

    You have a beautiful neighbor. Thanks for sharing his picture.

  3. OH MY!!! Right at the fence!!! How wonderful to see one so close! I’ve only seen two that I can recall in my lifetime and they were not this close!

    Are you home safe now? I’m looking forward to your tales in the high country.

    • Quite often if there aren’t too many people around, one or two of these will hang out right here behind one of the cabins, feasting on the abundant foliage. If I’d had my Nikon, I could have gotten an even closer shot, but the phone and then a bit of cropping worked reasonably well.

      I’m safely home as of Monday afternoon, thank for asking, and beavering away at cleaning, sorting mail, getting groceries, and all the other things that need to be done after 3 1/2 weeks. My husband unfortunately had to stay home and work and he kept the house in good order, but still many things to do. I do have a few tales and a number of photos, so stay tuned over these next days and weeks. 🙂

    Oh, that’s a wonderful picture! Everything about it!

    Goodness! Those antlers! Great shot.

    • I’m always amazed that they can run through all the trees (around, not literally through) with those antlers and not crash into any of the trees. It’s amazing!

    Amazing photo. Mr. Moose is one good-looking fellow… from afar.

  7. The animal kingdom seems to be reclaiming territory these days. What a perfect glamor closeup – the are gorgeous is a funny sort of way ( And I also wonder how they charge through underbrush and trees with this antlers)
    Glad you’re home safe and sound. (Ah, it looks so cool in that picture – breath of fresh cool air!)

    • Although it did get hot, low 80’s were the highs (unless down the mountain in town), so compared to my welcome home of over 110, it was lovely. 🙂

      Taken objectively, moose aren’t really attractive but the males at least are certainly magnificent.

  8. I’m glad it wasn’t an agitated moose and it let you take a pic peacefully 😀 I bet you enjoyed your time in the cooler parts! Glad you made it safely back to the heat.

    • Several of these guys like to eat in this area if there aren’t too many people and too much fuss around. I don’t worry too much about them here, but if I see one while I’m out riding, I’m quite careful…and so is the horse!

      When I left the cabin at 5:30 am, it was in the 50’s. When I got home the next afternoon, it was over 110. 🙂 No long pants again for quite some time!
