This morning we had a nice surprise while we were eating breakfast. We looked out the window and we had a mamma moose and her yearling calf visit us. As our backyard is a work in progress we put up a snow fence to keep our dogs in and the dogs and people that use the trail behind our property out. Apparently the moose didn't think much of this deterrent and just hopped in, ate some leaves and hopped back out. This really was a nice surprise as I have been in Alaska since June of 2004 and this is the first time we had moose come to visit in our yard. I love Alaska!
