looking for a moose....


in my 10 years of traveling up to Alaska i have only seen moose once and it was when i was out of the city...
i hear the traffic reports that say watch out for the moose at such and such an intersection... but i never manage to see them... this morning i drove to wasilla there was one in midtown anchorage.... but i was headed in the wrong direction naturally...
this picture is one of my favorite signs in AK... i was driving by and shot it with my phone... a miracle it is even this clear... it is a sign that shows the number of moose killed on this particular stretch of road on AK1 from Anchorage to Willa....

i had time before my flight so i headed out on a moose hunt... the locals told me where to go... no moose to be seen... just a whole lot of snow and horrible road conditions... maybe next year...

Wow...some day I'll make it to Alaska! In the meantime, I've got another Pop'rs giveaway to attend to. It has a St. Patty's Day theme, and starts Sunday. Any time to make a video? Pretty Please?
