Lori, Vic, Christy and I took a drive up Red Sandstone and Muddy Pass road looking for moose. I went to the place on Muddy Pass road where Bob Linn had reported seeing a moose. We found this large bull right there.

The light was not great, but he was a magnificent animal. He was sitting down and just visible when we got there. After about 45 minutes, he stood up and wandered around a bit. It was a really fun evening.
