With more time at home I am enjoying going through our travel photos. The following were from a trip we took to the Grand Teton National Park in August of 2007. We stayed at the Jackson Lake Lodge. Since this trip we have been back a couple of times but not for quite a while now.
One day we saw what only can be described as a buzz of activity from several people with cameras on the overlook. We had been in the sitting area of the Lodge, where the windows reached from floor to ceiling.
When we looked to see what was going on we saw Mother Moose and her calf not too far below. This was our fourth sighting on this vacation, and they were closer than the other three. It was very exciting and I just about fell out of my shoes when I saw them. Before this trip I had only seen these amazing animals in photos or on nature shows, and as I looked at them this wave of happiness came over me, I can't describe fully how I felt.
With all the thanks I could muster to my Sweet Other Half, he really is the best 'get off the beaten path' husband who always ends up finding his way, and next time we go on a road trip I will zip my mouth because you just never know what is around the next bend. "Yeah, right!" I hear him say, and yes we are both smiling.
Thanks for traveling back with me a few years ago, and I hope your day is a great one.
