It doesn't have anything to do with skiing, but I thought you might get a kick out of some photos I just took in our back yard.
This is a young mama moose and her two bull calves. We saw them a few times last fall and this is the first time they have reappeared since winter. I'm fairly sure these are her first calves because she was pretty small when she had them last year. Winter is really hard on the cows AND the calves, so it's nice to see they all pulled through.
The moose and elk look pretty ratty this time of year as all of their winter hair is falling off. If you look at the first photo, it's easy to see where the term "mangy moose" came from.
