Mama Moose, we also came upon a young bull moose hanging out near a pond. He was small (for a moose - an adult bull can be up to 1500 pounds) and kind of scraggly with his shedding winter coat. You can see the nubs where his antlers are emerging.
He stared at us with curiosity but didn't seem the least bit worried.
Moose are common in the Uinta and Wasatch Mountains, but seeing them at 8000 feet in late May is unusual. The heavy snow pack must be keeping them in lower elevations.
