When we arrived in the parking lot at Swift Current Inn in Many Glacier, Glacier Park, Montana, there was quite a hub bub! Shutterbugs were all a twitter over an incident with a moose mom with two calves. The trail head to Red Rock Falls provided an idyllic backdrop for a photo op with the moose family. But all of a sudden a grizzly bear snatched one of the calves and dragged it off to certain doom! The mother moose and surviving calf continued grazing, but the tourists were in a state of shock. Tiny Montany reminded us that when humans enter the park, there is always the chance that they may become part of the food chain as well! Luckily, we made it through our adventure intact. As we left the park, we noticed another survivor of the food chain loping along the river. "Moose" is a small oil painting on canvas, 9" x 12," painted in 2010.
