Sunday, coming home from the parade, we did see moose twice. Both times it was a mama moose with her calf feeding alongside the highway. It is difficult to see in the picture below, but a calf is standing on the other side of its mama. There are signs on the highways to give moose a brake, in the past year 174 have been killed by cars. And it is not unusual to see them roaming between houses. Fortunately for them most of Alaska is still wilderness area and there seems to be plenty of room for them to roam.
