The big tourists

July 4th is one of the biggest times in Park City for visitors. Lots of people with second homes show up for the gorgeous weather.

I was heading into CrossFit to work out when someone who just left popped back and said "hey, there's a big moose out back." Sure enough, a decent sized bull moose was wandering along the creek bed.



As luck would have it, I had my best camera in the car because I was going to shoot some pictures of work on a parade float. As crappy luck would have it, I had intentionally put my 10-24 mm wide angle lens on. So I ended up shooting these pictures with my tiny pocket camera.



He wandered over closer. The hill was steep enough that I wasn't worried about him running up after me. He was a lot more focused on munching bushes.



He really was pretty mellow about things. I would have hung around for more pictures, but I had to run back to my workout.



Certainly one of the more interesting visitors in town.
