Moose Moment on the Gunflint Trail

We were visiting Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center yesterday when all of a sudden the woman working the desk said, “There’s a bull moose at the end of the road.” Everyone stopped what they were doing, hurried to their cars and took off to see if they could find it. I looked at my watch and it was after 5pm so I made the comment, “That’s one way to get everyone out the door so you can close shop.” My daughter was with me and thought it was just her way of telling everyone to leave so she was delighted when we pulled out of the driveway and spotted a bull moose in the pond.  Everyone who had been at the museum was parked alongside the road and taking photos of the moose as he dipped his head into the water to find submerged plants and get a slurp or two of water.

Gotta love moose moments on the Gunflint Trail.
