|Moose, complete with antlers|
|Wet from the lake|
He went off the trail in a bit, and I continued running along the trail, expecting the moose to continue west toward the marsh where Chemung Road passes between Lake Wicwas and the swamp south of the lake, where I waited. And sure enough, it came out of the woods and crossed the road right in front of me.
He clearly saw me, as we watched each other, but it wasn't spooked until a car came along and scared it back into the woods. He has a small set of antlers, but I expect they will grow larger in the coming weeks, and will be good size by the start of the fall rut.
It swam and waded up along the eastern shore of Loon Point, climbing up onto land just before the first house, and probably walked right along Loon Point road. I went on my way, figuring I had bothered it enough.
It was my best moose sighting at Lake Wicwas ever - they really are majestic animals.
