|A moose foraging in Cape Breton Highlands National Park|
|Skyline Trail Boardwalk/Overlook|
We wanted to see a moose - not be trampled by one in a twilight filled forest. I would not knowingly take such a risk with my kids in tow, but it was certainly an exhilarating experience that I will not soon forget.
Perhaps I have read a bit too much Dr. Seuss of late, but I wrote a short poem to commemorate the experience:
Have you ever met a moose
by the road in a park?
Or on a trail in the dark?
Would you, could you meet a moose in a park
Would you choose to meet a moose
on a trail in the dark in a park
I think no
