I am determined that there is a Moose for me to see somewhere in all of these woods!! So I drug my family to another wilderness area... good thing they are easily persuaded to hike!
After mile two - I found a tree monster! He reached out and grabbed me and I was sure he was going to show me a Moose... alas - he just laughed when I tripped over my own shoe.
And then I saw where the Moose had rubbed his head.... he must have been large - both trees had rubbings!!
And we found his... well.... his scat ( he was at least a little discreet)
About Mile five - we met this cute little thing. Just so you know - I did yell Moose and make everyone stop. But then they laughed at me. Cuz he was such a tiny little "Not Moose".
at Mile eight - we encountered..... *the Grinch* - oh come on - you see him too! I know you do!!
But alas - no Moose... foiled again.... No worries..... I'll be back! ( that may be two movie references at once - crazy!)
On a more serious note - please hug your loved ones today. This day holds a lot of memories for many, and things we can't even imagine. I know it changed they way I saw my life going. Hugs to you all, my friends.
