I can’t believe it’s been nearly 10 days since I’ve written. It doesn’t seem like so much time has passed - in fact it feels like time has just flown by over the last week or so.
I have been keeping busy attending special events around town, and it’s taken me a long time to download photos, sort through them, and resize them for sharing. I think I’ve shot more than 1000 frames just over the past couple of days.
In my last entry, I wrote about the outhouse races in Chatanika that were coming up that weekend. Well, we didn’t go after all. We had all intentions of attending, but the weather took a nosedive, with below zero temps and strong gusting wind. At the last minute, Steve and I mutually decided that we didn’t want to have to bundle up and brave the elements. So instead we spent a nice quiet weekend here at home.
We had a visitor to our yard during the week. A cow moose decided that our yard was the perfect place to stop for a nap. We have two moose (cow and calf) that are regular travelers through our yard, so seeing a lone moose was different. After looking at the photos I took of her, I think she’s pregnant. My theory is that she’s either an entirely different moose than the two that have come by in the past, or she’s the cow moose of the pair and she’s pushed her calf away since she’s expecting. I didn’t pay close enough attention to the pair to see if there were any identifying marks, so I’m just guessing.
