Rocky Mountain Moose Experience

by | Aug 11, 2021

I’ve seen moose a couple times in my life as a Colorado resident. Historically, I’ve not had the best camera gear at the time. With the I-70 closure at Glenwood Springs, we took the southern detour via Hwy 50 and 285 over Kenosha Pass. Just before that, we saw what’s usually considered a “Bear Jam” or a traffic jam due to bears or rarer wildlife. As we pulled over, we noticed a large bull moose walking through and eating grass from a lake. With my new stimulus lens, I was able to zoom in & capture him up close. We had a concert to get to, but we took a long enough detour to get some amazing photos.
