Wildlife sightings...the big, the wet and the angry


During the cousin's visit, we saw lots of wildlife as we did some manic Alaskan adventuring with them. Here is a big 'ol cow moose who was eating pond weeds....She's just curious, here....


She's looking a little ticked off in this shot....


Samantha looks justifiably worried as moosey starts heading up the bank...
(We left right after this shot. Moose can pound a wee human into oatmeal very easily...)


Another critter we saw---this on on the alpine tundra around Granite Tors.
A Hoary Marmot. Sure, it looks like a rodent, but it's as big as a cocker spaniel. Posted by Picasa
