Often we see moose swimming. Since they are such leggy creatures, they seem like land animals, but either they need to cross the lake frequently or they just make good mileage in the water. The first time I saw a swimming moose, it was from way up the lake. It looked like the wind was blowing some branches toward our beach but then as it got closer, I saw that the branches were moose ears, flapping around listening. I watched that one swim at least two miles.
The mama moose below had a very young babe with her and she led the little one into the water right below our cabin. Our neighbor had his float plane at our dock and the calf swam between the floats. Too cute.
