THe first "sign" of a moose

Since I was stuck in Prince George for a few extra days I decided to experience one of the great canadian passtimes :  Searching for a moose.  After talking to ralph the overweight excessive gambler I was told to look for a swamp and the moose will come to me.  So  I headed on I-97 towards dawson creek and found a place called bear lake park.  OK a bear is not a moose... but bears need animals to hang out with, and I figure a moose would be a nice addition.  SO I had 40 miles north of prince goerge in a mosquito filled cess pool.  No Moose!

So in frustration I head back towards prince george to check out "salmon river run", figuring moose like to hang out by water.  Instead of being greeted by a nice all canadian moose I get greeted by a slew of fishermen, where I recieve a break :  Check out UNBC (university of northern british columbia).  So I head back to town , and go up a large hill and start hiking.  An hour pass and I see many "signs" pointing to a moose sighting.  Then suddenly I look up, and I see a beautiful moose about 30 feet away on a little ridge type thing.  I try to snap a picture and it heads towards the woods.  What a graceful animal!  SO here for you to see are authentic moose photos, they are kind of blurry, but hey what do you expect from a disgruntled technical advisor?
