Moose are the iconic species of the Northern Wilds. Those of us who live here regard the biggest beasts in the woods as our neighbors. For visitors, the sighting of a moose ambling along a backroad or grazing on water lilies in a quiet lake is the highlight of their trip. Every October, Grand Marais toasts these grand neighbors with its annual Moose Madness celebration. Since our readers never tire of moose, we’re sharing this selection of moose photos from throughout the year taken by some of our favorite local photographers.
