My In-laws Hans, John and I floated the Teton River in Driggs Idaho, just West of their home in Jackson Hole, WY. The day was going well with Hans and John catching most of the trout (experienced fly fishermen) and I rowing the drift boat and catching a few fish (not so experienced, MN spin fisherman)
When we came around the bend we almost bumped into three bull moose enjoying a dip in the cool mountain water. Hans and John stopped fishing, I kept rowing and we all just sat back in awe and took it in as we drifted on by.
Seeing a wild moose in Minnetonka is not going to happen anytime soon. Seeing a moose in the North woods of Minnesota is a rare occurrence as global warming and brainworm are taking their toll. Seeing three bull moose ten yards away from our drift boat is something I will always treasure.
