Hi there,

I was visiting my sister and her husband in Timmins, ON this summer. We were driving along a country road when I spotted some movement in the tall grass on the side of the road. I told Gary to stop the vehicle. Out of the grass emerged a moose, ever so slowly approaching the road. When she got to the centre of the road and made sure that all of the cars stopped, she looked over her shoulder towards the grassy area. Within seconds, not one but two baby moose came out onto the road! The three of them walked slowly and gracefully across the road in single file, with mom in the lead. They disappeared in the woods on the other side of the road. I wish I had my camera!
