Moose in the Northwoods

We were finishing packing up our camp on Horseshoe Lake in the BWCA at the end of a 4 day trip. At first, I thought it was a very obnoxious paddler or a loon having a difficult time getting speed up for take off. Then I remembered that moose tend to be loud and not be discrete about their movements. As the fog cleared across the lake, we saw a Northwood's treat, a calf and it's mother crossing the marsh/swamp across the lake. It was a perfect way to end our trip before packing up our base camp.

Two hours later, we finally pushed off. It's funny how quickly the first part of pack up goes and the last 20% takes 80% of the time.
