It's finally getting to the point where we can go outside for a little bit and not worry about freezing to death. I think, I might have just jinxed us. Crap.
One of the fun things about living in Evanston is the wildlife all over the place. Especially when you get to see things close up and alive, not close up and dead on the side of the road. Yesterday we took the snack pack (Jack) to a park. Evanston actually owns and maintains a buffalo herd and a couple of elk.
This actually looks like Jack is giant and is about to eat the elk like a skittle.
This is a moose. It's kind of hard to tell. This picture was taken in our neighbors front yard. We took this and left cause we were heading to see Curt off at the MTC but the moose visited our yard. I know that because after the snow melted he left 2 massive piles of evidence.
Eventually the city had to tranquilize him and take him back to the mountains. He was getting pretty comfortable. I drove past him one day and little kids were throwing snow balls at him...so it was probably a good idea to remove him. We are pretty sure he's only a yearling so I bet he finds his way back to town if we get another bad winter.
