Zoom Lens: Moose in McGrath


Ruminating moose with calf barely visible behind her.

Figuring I’d like a special shot of the final musher to leave McGrath, I walked a mile or so up from the checkpoint to where the boat landing is.  On the walk to my desired photo opportunity, I noticed a moose with a calf lying in the brush by the side of the road.  The calf was well hidden behind the cow.  The cow was ruminating in the truest sense of the word – chewing her cud and with her eyes closed she appeared to be thinking deeply.
