Most of us will unfortunately never experience a moment like this. A Wyoming camper on his way to a backcountry stay in mountain cabins in the Bighorns came face-to-face or I should say face-to-moose on the way.

According to Mark Patterson's share on YouTube, this mighty moose moment happened as he was on his way to Spear-O-Wigwam mountain cabins in the Bighorn range. This animal is breathtaking.

If you're familiar with your bull moose, you know that a big boy like this can weigh up to 1,500 pounds as Wikipedia documents. It also states that very few predators in the wild can rival a full-grown bull moose. Only Siberian tigers, a pack of wolves and large bears can potentially take down an animal like this. Wikipedia mentions one crazy encounter where a shark killed a bull moose who was crossing a waterway. Call SyFy, I now have a new movie idea.

It's a good thing that Mark or whoever captured this video kept their cool and maintained their distance from this large moose. Admiring it from a distance is epic, but you don't want him to suddenly pay a lot of attention to you or you likely won't make it to the mountain cabin you've rented.

What a video share by Mark. You don't get much more iconic Wyoming than this.

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
