"Rawah" means "wild place" in the Native American language.
Here are some pictures my husband took a few days ago, when he backpacked up into this high alpine wilderness.
Moose were introduced to this area in the 70's and they are thriving now. With plenty of willow trees and abundant lakes and no predators, it's an ideal habitat for them.
Look at these cinnamon babies!!!!
And to think mama would nonchalantly let them nurse, in the company of C.
Moose live in such a secretive world, but my husband's presence seems to be non threatening to her.
He's my mountain man, another Tom Brown the Tracker, part Grizzly Adams, and a little Edward Abbey.
A friend of mine said to me yesterday, "you guys attract animals!".
She could be right. Or we are just that lucky.
