A Moose Made Me Exercise

A moose made me exercise recently. Actually, it might have been two of them. This is not a joke.

My wife and I went up to Aspen recently. While there, we were going to go up and walk around Maroon Lake near Maroon Bells. This is a very pretty hike (the Maroon Lake Scenic Trail ), and also easy. It’s only about a mile and is very flat with smooth terrain.  However, we couldn’t go on that trail. A moose or two had been spotted by the end of Maroon Lake, so the trail was closed.  We had to go on the Crater Lake Trail.

The Crater Lake Trail, of course, is about 3.6 miles round trip. It’s described as a “a steep and rocky ascent,” which is an understatement if anything. That trail was intense, and it rained while we were on it, just up by Crater Lake where we no longer had any option to hike or not. All because of a moose.

Stupid moose.
