Great RR and pics. Mooses are over-rated anyway

Great report from another part of the country I've never seen!

Don't get so discouraged, about not sighting a moose, that you make a special trip to Yellowstone.........I looked around there for 6 days and never saw a single one.


I think the Bison ate 'em all.

Great report! Canadian Provinces have a lot of dirt/gravel opportunities. Maybe next time just plan on not seeing any mooses and they'll probably be in your way me and mtngal followed along and really enjoyed all you shared!

Ummmm.... I hate to tell you this, but um uh..........

Never mind, those are some gorgeous mooses! Glad you didn't hit them with your truck or bikes!



Speaking of critters in Yellowstone, I worked and played there for years and saw lots of wildlife, but only very rarely saw bears. When my girlfriend (now wife) came out to visit from Virginia we took a two day spin through Grand Teton and YNP and saw nine bears in that one trip! You just never know. On our last trip out to visit family in Wyoming we saw a really nice white tail deer buck:



I'm sorry you didn't get to see any live moose, but it sounds like it was an awesome adventure anyway. I'm anxious to get up to that country and check it out, maybe next summer. I like the idea of trucking past all the big cities, I don't really have any interest in riding through those places. Thanks for the report and numerous ideas on where to go and where NOT to go!

Doug

Moose

You've shared a great story here! I think a few other inmates have already made reference to the plentiful bounty of Moose to be seen in Montana. That is the only place that I have gotten to see them. A big mama cow and her lil baby bull wondered right in to my camp. Maybe you can take a ride out west?

Great ride report! Highway 112 through MA is close to where I am up here and a great road. I've found some great gravel roads up here in Western MA. Helps to have a guide once in a while.
I liked that truck too! Where was it?

I think the truck was in Jaffrey, NH.. I think. . There were a lot of roads to the side in MA... as usual, too many roads not enough time


Oh, and I got a funny pic from Cape Breton I didn't post

That was in a small diner in Whycocomagh




and the nifty little bike powered battery charger for the camera (I turned my phone off so I didn't care about a phone charger)

Nice! I finally got to see how things worked out. Too bad about all of the rain. It seems like there is no escape from it this year, especially in the east.
