Yesterday I made the short hike to the outlook on Pine Mt in Alton. Just as I reached the top from the west, I saw a moose approaching the top from the east. He stopped and stared intently at me for a while, and then turned and ambled slowly off to the NW to get behind the brush you see at the far left. I was glad to experience the chance encounter, but I was equally glad that he chose not to claim a spot on the top also. When he first saw me he laid his ears back near horizontal, which often can mean that the moose is not pleased and may be feeling aggressive. View to the ENE - a line from the middle of the bottom of the photo over the moose's rump passes over part of Echo Point, Trask Swamp, Lake Wentworth and Green Mt, on the horizon.
