If you ever want a cool moose backpacking trip with some added science, check out the Moosewatch Expeditions on Isle Royale! https://isleroyalewolf.org/participate/participate/explorers.html

bccarlso, thanks. I know Isle Royale and I'll pass on the off trail trips that group is talking about. The links in The Guardian article are well worth a peek.

A moose in a camel hair coat. Classy.

I've always wanted to go on one of those trips, but haven't had the time/money (or at this point, strength) to do so. Maybe one day! Thanks for the interesting-sounding links, I'll take a look.
