And yes, we did see a moose.

A beautiful drive north into Rangeley today. Truly spectacular scenery and quite different from the coast of Maine that I am used to. We were in search of two relatives that we never did find.

On the drive home at dusk, we slammed on the brakes and avoided hitting a big moose who decided to take a stroll across the highway. The car behind us couldn't stop and swerved around us nearly hitting us or that moose. We pulled over about mile ahead and talked to the other driver who blew out a tire in the incident. No injuries in the adventure but the adrenilin sure was pumped!

I had my camera sitting on my lap, but it happened so fast and I was enthralled with the sight of that big animal, so no photo.
