Well, we waited long enough for it, but it’s finally here. Spring has come to our high country ranch. Yesterday was a coyote, flower and baby buffalo day while this morning I got to watch a moose head down the driveway to the house. Unfortunately, I wasn’t at the house – I was a half mile away taking my walk and just happened to be looking back at the house when a big black critter galloped across the hillside and down the driveway. Even at that distance, a moose is easy to recognize. They’re huge with a body about the size of a bison but with long legs and neck. Sort of like a long necked buffalo on stilts. The picture here isn’t of this moose – my moose this morning was a cow (just imagine this one without antlers). If only I’d stayed home and looked out the window!
