I have been visiting my family in the Adirondacks since they moved there in 1986. I even lived there one year, not too long ago. I have never seen a moose. I paid a surprise visit to my Mom for Mother’s Day. My sister had a cookout for us. Driving back in the early evening, I was on the lookout for animals. They always think the grass or bugs are tastier by the road I guess. They might just be looking for beer cans with a few drops left. Anyway, I saw what I thought was a horse standing by the side of the road. It had a horse face, I swear. But of course, it was a moose without any antlers or horns (not sure what they are called). I can check that off my bucket list. I will probably see them all the time now.
I only saw one deer, that was in the morning on the way up. We saw dozens of turkeys, a few at a time. I did not see any bears this time, but I have before. That was another reason to head back early.
Hopefully this will be the last night of cold weather. I did not get the space age fabric comforter out. I guess I will blame that on the reason I can not get back to sleep. I also started laundry, and will fall asleep to the soothing sound of the dryer.
Where was this exactly?
It was between Blue Mountain Lake and Raquette Lake in New York State. The Adirondack mountains take up most of the north east of NY state, north of the Catskills. It is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours north of where I live.
