    I love the reflections.

    Is that one of the moose twins?

    Wonderful that you got some rain.

      No, this was not one of the twinswhich we saw in the campground area at Gros Ventre.

      This one we saw couple of weeks later after we came back to Grand Teton after Yellowstone to do some kayaking before we had to leave to come back to Santa Fe for medical stuff.

      This one was  bigger, almost seemed like a teenager, but still with Mama out in the flooded willow areas  of the Oxbow.  Over the years we have had many great experiences with moose there.  Luckily, we have not gotten in their way or the way of the grizzly we once saw swim across the Snake !!

      Another kayaker had told us that day to be careful threading through the area because he had seen  the mothe,r and he was right in doing so. We had missed them when we first paddle through, turned around and went back.  Moose, big as they are, blend in very well and one does not  want to get in their space.

      We took a chance and floated within 30 feet or so of them, held onto a willow clump which provided some shade, had our picnic lunch and watched them watch us and feed for about 30 minutes.  Was so great!
