A little rain and one moose

Wow, a fantastic little vacation to Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, Vermont. It rained probably 75% of the time, but good times were had nonetheless.

Click for slideshowAfter following, what we thought were, fresh moose tracks into the woods for a few hours with no luck, we finally met a moose on the side of the road. Several times. Turns out this moose stayed in pretty much the same spot on the side of the highway for the better part of a full day. In fact this same moose was still there at 9pm that same night, drinking water in the gutter and lifting its head as we drove by. I took some other pictures as well. Click the moose for a slideshow.

I can’t recommend the Moose Meadow Lodge enough — hiking trails, stocked pond, easy access to Stowe, Montpeiler, Burlington, Ben & Jerry’s factory, etc., great hosts and great food.

A couple more days off before going back to work. It’s going to be hard after an unwind like this…
