Late Saturday afternoon, just before dusk, we set out to drive down Axtell-Anceney Road. Third generation rancher, Joe Axtell, is our next door neighbor two miles away.

Charles Anceney founded the Flying D ranch (now Ted Turner's 113,613 acre ranch) that stretches from Yellowstone National Park to (almost) Joe Axtell's ranch.
The old dirt road winds along to tops of ridges and down into valleys.
Suddenly Kathryn yelled STOP. STOP THE CAR!
Kathryn knows a moose when she sees one. We thought this one might be guarding a little calf down by the creek. But we weren't about to go down and have a look. It was huge, twice the size of a cow.
