    Your ride seeing deer and several critters reminded me of a an experience I had in New Hampshire. Several years ago my brother and I rode our bicycles from Bar Harbor to western NY. While riding thru New Hampshire a female moose stepped out onto the road not more than 25 yards in front of us. We immediately stopped and watched as she began to glare at us and posture up letting us know in no uncertain terms not to move. Next thing we know her yearling calf comes from behind us and crosses between the mother and us! Once the calf was across the road the mother followed leaving us standing there, in our little spandex outfits, in the rain with our mouths hanging open totally dumbfounded by the experience.

    Any encounter with a moose in which you walk away is a good one.:deal

    yep, I've never seen a moose while riding and I hope to never see a moose while riding. When I see out of staters stopped with their cameras out when the sun just came out, I cover the brakes and slow down because they're likely photographing a moose that's ready to jump out and kill me.

    Not my photo but GSA for comparison:

    Wife and I were driving through Winter Park, just north of the ski area, and saw a bunch of cars on the side of the road looking intently at something not too far off the road so we stopped. Maybe 40 yards off the road was a small bull moose. Everyone, except one idiot, was watching the moose eat and meander and enjoying the spectacle. But not the one idiot, oh no. He was trying to get close to the moose with his camera. Really close. You could see the moose getting agitated. We left. I don't know if he got stomped or simply ruined the experience for all of the gawkers who stayed. What's that saying, "you can't fix stupid"?

    And that's not even a particularly large cow. A large bull would be half again her size. :uhoh

    Sorry we're getting away from the topic and photos - my last post on this issue.

    Saw a special on TV about what the bulls will do during the rut. A 12 year old girl in Maine was stomped by one while walking home from a friend's house. Bull saw her and that was it, stomped all over her. Fortunately she played dead and it eventually left, but she was really beat up. They're apparently pretty docile most of the time, but they should be considered off limits during the fall.

    I've been told that if you honk your horn at one it might charge your car. One charged a big truck in Washington, tore it up to !

    Oh yes. I wouldn't post anything of her if not pre-approved. :D BTW, she didn't cry after these oopsies like I would have.

    That'll teach her not to leave her purse size rocks in the middle of the trail.

    Hope no one was hurt.
