I ran into these strange looking horses on the way down from the Russian River last week, anyone know what they are?
Yeah just kidding, but in all seriousness when these guys came around the bend, I was a little bit startled to say the least. The mother moose was at least seven feet tall and didn't slow her pace one bit as she headed towards me. Her eyes never left me as I slowly got my camera out. I didn't want the mother to feel threatened, so I retraced my steps back up the trail to give the family plenty of room. I managed to get this shot before she and her calf veered off from the path, making a wide arc around us before continuing on. Check out @taylorgraybts
