In a Rut

After finishing up a hike on Tiffany Mountain near Winthrop in the Okanogan National Forest this past week I was treated to quite a surprise. Two moose! One bull-one cow-getting ready for a little amorous action. It is the rutting season. This is the first time I have ever seen moose in the Cascades of Washington. I've seen evidence of them in the Stehekin Valley before-but this is the first time I have witnessed these big beasties in the North Cascades. How cool is that? Not the best picture, but still better than those Sasquatch photos that leave much doubt!
