Where to see a moose? Drive until you lose your cell signal.

If you want to spot a moose, drive north until your phone signal stops working. Seriously. That seems to be the trick. You have to get out there on the edge of wilderness. A bit of luck helps, too.

We’ve now had two moose sightings this year. The first one was in January on Minnesota’s Gunflint Trail. They like to escape the deep snow and lick salt along the sides of this scenic highway. The second was in June on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This moose wasn’t far off the road. We were able to pull over and watch her as she watched us.
