Two moose were exploring the area by Spring Creek Ranch’s horse corral this afternoon browsing on shrubs and eating snow. The corrals are very close to our reception building so these moose could actually be seen from our lobby!
This calf was most likely born last May and will spend another few months with its mother before separating from her.
Early summer is an ideal time to see newborn animals and recent sightings have included young bison, pronghorn, owls and moose.
This moose calf may have been just days old, but it lay calmly underneath its mother surrounded by Arnica wildlflowers.
Bears have been cooperative on recent excursions and we have had regular sightings of both black and grizzly bears.
