It’s a good thing I have windows in my garage looking out over the backyard. I was about to let Sam outside only to look through the window and see a moose hanging out on our little hill chomping away on some branches. So, Sam wasn’t let out and I just stood there watching her for a minute. Then I went in and told the kids and grabbed the camera. The moose was approximately 20 yards from my garage door. The picture is a bit fuzzy because I was zooming in on her. It’s also dark because the sun hasn’t come up from behind the mountains yet and a flash just doesn’t work at that distance. She turned around and looked at me when I opened the door. I was smart enough to take the picture from the door and not get any closer. I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Moving across the country and leaving family and friends will do that to you I suppose. Anyway, a moose sighting always makes me happy and I’m hoping this is a good sign for a great weekend.
