Once you start down the road into Denali National Park (the first section is the only paved road in the park) you are soon driving through taiga forest which consists mostly of small spruce trees and marshy ground. This is a favourite place for the Moose of the park to feed and so forth and as such is the most likely place you are going to spot them (rather than further out on the tundra where tree cover is much more sparse – not enough food and limited cover to protect from predators).
One of the more amusing moments Moose spotting was seeing a bull and cow frolicking amongst the trees. The cow was basically flirting with the bull (rutting season was close) then running away, only to return and do that again! The poor bull!
There is nothing quite like seeing a huge bull Moose in the wild. They truly are a massive creature which you can not help but be impressed by! They mostly still had velvet on their antlers which was interesting to see.
Seeing a baby Moose is also a highlight when out Moose spotting. So clumsy yet so cute! The mother is never too far away and is always keeping an eye on her “little” companion(s).
You are likely to see plenty of them outside the confines of the park too. Especially along main roads that border on similar forest. They don’t tend to hang around very long though and will head straight for the trees if spotted (give them plenty of room anyway as they are notoriously aggressive!).
