Description: Every year my Mother takes my sister and I to a different state over the 4th of July. Alaska is a very special trip because this was my mother's 50th state. Along with visiting Alaska she wished to see a bull moose in the wild. After leaving Chena Hot Springs on a rainy July day in Fairbanks, we were driving down the road secretly hoping to see Alaska wildlife come out of the dense trees. I got my camera out just in time to capture this beautiful peaceful moment. It took our breath away and was a moment we will never forget. Thank you, Alaska!
