I was walking on the Alaska Dog Musher’s Association trails to Creamer’s Field to take some sunrise photos when I heard rustling up ahead. I kept walking cautiously when I noticed a face slowly turning as I passed. The full moose came into view around some willows and I saw her watching me with ears forward. At this point, my line to her was perpendicular to the trail, so I would be the same distance continuing as if I backed off. I was uncomfortably close, but I managed to still take one photo before continuing. I had only taken a few steps when her ears went down and she resumed chewing on the willows.
