Today we had two moose/wildlife tours. During our morning tour on the Pontoon boat, we had a partial moose sighting. It’s been a bit of a challenge to catch a look lately, so that was very exciting for us! We also saw loon, geese, and fabulous views of the mountain and fall foliage!

We had an enjoyable and relaxing trip with guide, Dave, leading the way. The group ventured down the famed Golden Road with high hopes of spotting a moose but it seems the moose had other plans. In addition to enjoying spectacular fall colors, the group saw deer, ducks and geese.

Our fearless guide, Glen, made a valiant effort to locate a moose–any moose–but no luck today. We were lucky in the bird department, though, as we saw an eagle, a few loons and various ducks. A good time was had by all!
