It’s cold and the moose are out

The moose around Bragg Creek, and elsewhere I would imagine, like the cold.  When the thermometer drops below zero, they seem to come out.  The colder, the better.  This weekend we have stayed below -20°C and I found moose in a few different places around West Bragg Creek.

I got to spend an hour with a small herd of three cows and one calf.  They were pretty docile, grazing on slender, red branches for much of the morning.  They moved together and apart between stands of these branches and more open meadow.  The young one played a little bit, running between mother and minders a couple of times.
