"Sunday Morning in the Colorado Rockies"
Moose - Brainard Lake Recreation Area, Colorado
Lori and I went to Brainard Lake this past Sunday. We were fortunate to locate and photograph three different moose. Lori spotted the first one, a nice bull, shortly after arriving at about 6:15 a.m.. We photographed him for several hours. We then hiked up to Long Lake, where we heard that two bulls were hanging out, found them and photographed them for two more hours. Of those two, this image features the one with the largest rack. Afterwards, we drove up the 4-wheel drive road to Left Hand Reservoir, where we watched lightening strikes from a passing thunderstorm. We then went down and enjoyed pizza at Millsite Inn in Ward. It was a very good day.
