Moose Dip! Man Captures Rare, Glorious Sight in the Adirondacks
Watch a pair of moose go for a dip in the ADKS at Big Moose Lake
Upstate NY can be a truly magical place. How many times have you road-tripped throughout the state with your eyes peeled on the forest hoping to catch a glimpse of something you've never seen before?
Most people will argue that our mighty Adirondacks are the crown jewel of New York State. It covers one-fifth of New York State, is as big as Vermont, and is nearly three times the size of Yellowstone National Park.
Within the Adirondack Park are more than 2,800 lakes and ponds, and more than 1,500 miles of rivers, fed by an estimated 30,000 miles of brooks and streams.
And if you're lucky, you might even spot a moose, or two!
The incredible sight was captured on video by Lucas Relkin at Big Moose Lake, NY which is about 2 and a half hours northwest of Albany, back in April.
Unicorns of the ADKS
According to nature enthusiasts, moose are considered the unicorns of the Adirondacks, "awe-inspiring and highly sought after, but rarely seen."
The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation estimates that approximately 400 moose live in the Adirondacks; sightings are rare, but not impossible if you know where to look.
We have two videos to show you in this post, both of them were filmed in mid-April in Upstate New York
In the first video, you can see heads and antlers popping out of the waters of Big Moose Lake and the two majestic animals - probably a mom and her baby - gliding downstream with the current. Such a rare, glorious sight.
In the second video, watch as the baby moose carefully makes its way out of the water following its mom into the mountains.
