I have previously posted on my experiences in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming (2011) but I thought I would revisit the absolute highlight for me amongst all that spectacular scenery……
I had spent days looking for Moose in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park further to the north. The last time I had briefly seen one was in Manitoba, Canada in 2006 (after spending a lot of time looking for them in the forests around places like Jasper in Alberta) and then late on my last day in Grand Teton I was fortunate enough to see 2 magnificent Moose brothers up really close at the aptly named Moose Junction!
What fascinated me the most with the Moose (who I named Bullwinkle and Marty) apart from their sheer magnificent size was the difference in their antlers. You can see the variance in my photos, although they are about the same size, one has antlers that have not fully developed yet and look more like the antlers of an Elk. I seriously could not wipe the smile from my face for hours after this moment.
