Things to Love About Alaska #1

The wildlife here is awesome, and everywhere.  This video is from the end of May, as we stood in the living room and watched a mama moose and her baby walk right through our side yard.  They had been in the court for almost half an hour but we only taped the last few seconds of their visit.  Our dog, Brody, makes some funny noises by way of providing a soundtrack to the video.  If you've never seen a moose in person, you probably won't realize exactly how huge they are, but the cars on the street will give you some perspective.  And yes, a moose--especially a mother moose--will kick and stomp you if you get in her way, which is why we observe from the safety of our living room.
