And then there's the nature element. Specifically moose, of which, they usually travel in pairs. So safety tip: if you ever see a moose, be careful because the second one is somewhere nearby. There are laws in Alaska that explicitly state, "do no harm -- to the moose." I'm paraphrasing of course. I have no idea what the laws are in regards to moose (I don't even know the plural form of moose). But I do know that if you are driving on the road, you must yield and stop to allow a moose to cross . . . and trust me they are usually in no hurry. One might think that they are aware of their status in Alaska. You cannot honk at a moose. You must never, ever approach a moose. But, apparently it seems okay to pull over to then side and take pictures with your camera phone. While they may seem cute and cuddly, they are very, very large animals. I'm gonna go out a limb as say that they,re bigger than a horse -- although I have no reliable data to prove that statement. Just fyi, "coo" and "aww" from a distance.
