Moose Sightings June 2008

Some people come to Alaska and never see a moose. some who have lived here for years have not seen a moose yet. We saw all of these on the same day. We were at the entrance to Fort Richardson on our way to the fish hatchery on the base. This moose acted like he wanted to cross the road, but there was a lot of traffic from both directions. Thank goodness it was an access road to the base and not the main highway he was trying to cross. The four-lane Glenn Highway was not far away, as we had just exited it to go to the base.

He finally saw his chance and ran across the road in front of us. We were stopped at the time so we could take his picture.

We saw this big guy as we came out of the fish hatchery.
We did not stay very long to try to get a better picture of him, but he was BIG!

Two moose at Potters Marsh along the Seward Highway south of Anchorage.
