Moose (Not Mouse!!) Mountain

Mouse mountain? I don’t think so. My legs told me it was definitely bigger than mouse-sized. My auto correct in Strava changed it from Moose to Mouse Mountain. I didn’t see this understatement for several hours and then quickly changed it. However even though my friends thought I had climbed a mouse-sized mountain they still kindly gave me ‘kudos’. Thanks guys for the encouragement.

Moose mountain is a significant climb and a beautiful view from the top. You can just make out Calgary 50k in the one direction. And facing West, you can see we are on the doorstep of the Rockies.

A forest fire warden station is at the very top (with a friendly real live warden who sometimes comes out to chat with the climbers).

The morning was overcast so it never got too hot and bonus that we didn’t get wet.

And it would not be a trip up moose mountain without seeing a moose or two. Thanks for posing, Mr Moose.
