Wildlife Preview

I caught a couple of wildlife encounters on video.
   Here's a porcupine that I followed off the side of the road, south of Denali National Park. He was hard to follow in that long grass, and I lost him for a few seconds at the beginning, and was very glad that he didn't double-back and nail me with that spiky tail. Thankfully, he was shy and just wanted to be left alone.
    And a Moose on the Glenn Highway (Route 3), on the way up to Denali. (That's Mom cracking up at the site of those 4 gangly legs flying.) Note that he crosses in front of a moose crossing sign at the end.
