Two years ago, I decided to open my “AMC Maine Mountain Guide” and randomly choose hiking destinations each week (much like the “One-Minute Hike” videos I’m creating now, sans the videos). I drove all over the state that summer in my silver Jeep Liberty, “Henry,” who has since retired. And though I’ve lived in Maine my entire life, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many moose as I did in the summer of 2009, many of them on the logging roads I traversed to find trailheads. I counted seven moose, but I wasn’t able to snap photos of them all. Here are the photos of the ones that stuck around long enough for me to locate my camera.
