The trouble with Moose in College Gate

George, George, George of the jungle watch out for that… “Moose”?  Another close encounter this morning! Have you ever hit a moose or almost hit one?

I live in College Gate. It’s a great little neighborhood in the south west corner of Bonniface and Northern Lights and this morning, again I almost ran into a Moose! They just come walking right out of nowhere and don’t even think twice about it. You would think their mama would teach them to look both ways first!  =^)

We have a mama and two calves that are about 2 years old I think this spring. They are troublemakers, always getting in to stuff and holding up the school bus some days just standing in the road looking at you with a dumb look.

I like living in a town that is large enough and modern enough that I went to the opera the other night and saw La Bohème and here I am also getting to experience the wildlife first hand and up close. It just has its own little draw backs.

Oh well that’s life in the big city of Anchorage! The reason the Anchorage Convention & Visitors Bureau’s slogan is “Big Wild Life” I’m sure.
