You've Got To Love . . .

A headline like the one in today's Anchorage Daily News - Falling Moose Nearly Takes Out Trooper . I've driven by the area described hundreds of times when I lived on the mainland and what you normally see are Dall sheep scaling the rock cliffs beside the Seward Highway. I did see a moose stranded on an ice floe one time, floating out to Cook Inlet on the ebb tide, but a moose falling into the roadway takes the cake.

Ya I heard about that the other day. It reminds me of this book that I am borrowing from Trevor. It's called Moose Dropping and Other Crimes against Nature. I highly recommend it to anyone that reads this blog. Some very interesting little tidbits about Alaska. It covers a little of everything; politics, nature, the gold rush, and just plain crazy things that have happened in the Ak. One of which is the Talkeetna moose dropping festival.

LOL!!!!! Poor Moose.

Great picture. Do you adjust your lighting or is that natural light you capture perfectly?

I never adjust anything, you've got to take it as I see it, warts and all. Sounds like a good book Zack - feel free to circulate it out this way when you're done reading it, your brother won't mind . . .
