The county road from the tiny town of Jefferson, Colorado to Jefferson Lake travels through moose country with a few rustic campgrounds along the way. Don’t always spot moose but while there on Monday got lucky enough to photograph two of them having a snack of leaves and a drink. Would have gotten more pictures but a big pickup with out-of-state plates came roaring down the road and when the dust cleared the moose were long gone up the mountain. They were in the road when we first got there...shudder to think what would have happened if they’d still been there when the truck came along. Thank goodness, most visitors coming into our state respect the land, wildlife, and natural beauty of Colorado. Others, unfortunately, just don’t seem to get it.
