There aren't many roads in Newfoundland, but there are a lot of bogs, lakes and trees, so it would still be a challenge.

I believe the white patch that you are seeing on her side is a scar where the is no hair growing. The Mooses here in Wyoming are shedding their winter coats now, so some are looking a little mangy.

In the other photo, I think that is a piece of trash that has blown into one of the small willow bushes.

Thanks for the tip. We have been to devils Tower a couple of times, and need to bypass it this trip as we need to stop in Denver to make some changes to the truck camper. Then we need to head for Jacksonville so that we can see SuEllyn's Dad for Fathers Day.

They play that outdoors on the deck every night. The film features Devils Tower. Awesome.

The Moose Hunt Concludes

Lucy is still in her place at the Indian Campground in Buffalo, Wyoming. We spent the morning organizing things to get Lucy ready for departure. We reorganized all the gear in the back of Olivia to get her ready.

We headed out to the Moosing grounds late this afternoon. We had 14 Moose sightings including a Mom Moose with her little guy. Mooses are usually born during the month of May. It is somewhat rare to see baby Mooses as their Moms usually keep them in hiding.

We tallied the numbers, and we have had a total of 116 Moose sightings during our six days in the Forest. That's a pretty good week of Moosing. It was time to leave the Forest and say farewell to the Mooses for now.

We headed back into town where we got Olivia a good bath as she was covered with dirt and mud from her dirt road travels. When we got back to Lucy, we did some further trip preps. We are targeting getting underway substantially earlier than our usual crack of noon tomorrow.

Brian

I have been trying to figure out what the structure is next to SuEllyn in the photo where she is standing on what looks like an old earthen dam. My first thought was a flume providing water, perhaps to a mine building.

Gene,

That is an old earthen dam that was supported by the timbers. You are correct. It is part of an old tie flume system. Here is a photo of the sign at end of the old dam.

Thanks for the travel log - those of us still working have enjoyed it!
BTW - curious about the "32" on your license plate?

Florida tag numbers 32 and 33 were my father's, and they were passed down to me. In Florida these low number tags can not be sold, but can be passed down in families.

In Florida, the Governor does not use tag number 1. It it held by a family in Gainesville.
