Wildlife viewing has increased dramatically since our relocation. Often while driving through the canyons, we are treated with various ungulate appearances. Until recently, the Big Thompson Canyon has been the hotspot for variety, but moose over Big T because the Poudre Canyon is now holding the crown.
After a few hours fishing near the hatchery, Dustin and I decided to head further up the canyon to take a peak at the falls. Cruising merrily long, Dustin and I are enjoying an afternoon drive until he shouts, “MOOSE”. Slowing rather quickly and busting a U-turn we cruise back to the spot. Here, we see four moose having an afternoon snack. A good day just became awesome. Moose are one item that was unchecked on the wildlife list, and it was super cool to finally check it. Not to mention checking it 20 yards from the window. I believe Wolfy said, wait until you see the moose. You are right my friend, magnificent. Ungulates on our Poudre Canyon list, Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Mule Deer and Moose.
Colorado, you do not disappoint.
