Ramble

RDP Monday: Ramble

We were hiking up to the edge of the glacier in Alaska. The group in front of me, including my wife, were setting a fairly fast pace. I fell just a little behind. My mistake. Out of the woods on my left a moose and her calf suddenly and loudly appeared. To them it was their normal ramble in search of breakfast. I froze. The big girl let out a sound that was not a welcoming sound. She continued to waddle toward me. Even her baby looked huge. Funny how a big animal like that can move so fast. Funny how even faster an old man can walk backward.

  1. She was letting you know to keep your distance! Nice photo really emphasizes your separation from the group. Just yesterday we encountered a moose and her. She kept munching with an eye on us and then crossed the trail. Her calf followed and they both carried on and so did we!

  2. OMG, it’s their territory. At least you have pic to show off. I remember walking alone in the park at Banff when I met up with a moose. Rumble wasn’t a word I could think of but fear.
