Backyard Moose in Steamboat Springs

I got this photo from one of my neighbors yesterday. It appears as though these three moose wandered into their backyard to enjoy a light snack on the flowers and brush. Earlier this summer I was out on my bike riding down the Yampa Core Trail and coming around a corner I almost hit a baby moose head-on. I think he was just as surprised as myself. Not originally from Steamboat these encounters with wildlife still throw me off my guard a bit, but are more than welcome. Just another one of the unexpected surprises living in Steamboat brings into daily life.
