Saturday I went to Silver Lake with friend who had never been. We went up early in the day to increase the likelihood of seeing a moose. Carole, I am so sorry, as we saw four! As we started along the walkway a big bull moose, along with his family (cow and child), was strolling through the brook eating the reeds quite voraciously.

We could see another bull moose sitting in the grass on the other side of the lake not quite ready to start his day. From our side of the lake we could see his large antlers move and a small group of people watching, but we were unable to make it around before he stood up and walk away into the reeds.
The day was exceptional and the sky particularly vivid, constantly changing, as clouds formed and moved on. My head was up staring at the formations for much of our walk, but not to the point I couldn't spot the many wildflowers we saw.
