North Temperance Moose
Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Minnesota, 2014
This is not necessarily a look you want to get from a bull moose. On the third day of a five-day backcountry trip in the Boundary Waters, a day in which we made seven portages while paddling across seven lakes and one river, we saw eight moose. This was the second of two bulls we saw crossing North Temperance Lake. Fortunately for us, he continued his crossing of the lake rather than charging the canoe. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
