The Faro Moose

Today we had the pleasure of parking about 25 feet away from a moose that has been living in Faro for the last month. There are actually two of them that have been frequenting town and bedding down in yards around Faro. I have seen them four different times- the cutest being last week when Hunter pointed her out.

Today we were driving when I looked over and saw her again. Well pretty sure it is a her- the tummy on her looks like she is going to have a nice calf this spring. She was eating the willows near the store. We stopped and turned off our truck, nothing like being stealthy in a diesel! She was content with the truck off and continued to eat. Hunter was on the right side of the vehicle to have an excellent view. He just sat in his car seat and yelled "moo, moo, moo" while we watched her.

Another great day in Faro.
