"A moose has come out of the impenetrable wood."

The title of this post is taken from one of my favorite poems by Elizabeth Bishop, entitled "The Moose." We had a visitor munching on leaves at my aunt's cabin. More later, but for right now, here's a taste:

Nancy, that is so cool! A moose in the wild. What a lucky girl you are. And thank you for 'The Moose' poem. It was new to me.

Cheryl, if you give a moose a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it.

This moose wandered back to the cabin the next day and got scared off by the noise of someone's generator. My aunt's part of the canyon is seeing a lot of growth.

We saw a second moose on a hike a few days before cooling himself off in a patch of snow. That was really cool.

Oh, sorry, Mike. Yes, it is in Utah in the Wasatch mountain range.
