It is hard to explain how big things are up here. Everything really is bigger. Sorry Texas. I mean Mt. Everest seems big, but starting at 17,000 feet is like not counting half the mountain.
When out hiking, we look at a peak and think it is a mile away. Maybe it will take us 30 minutes to reach the base. 4 hours later, we are only a little closer. Turns out it was 8 miles away and much bigger than we thought.
Here is a picture of a moose and some people.
Well this is a little better. But the moose is so damn camouflaged, even though it is 8 feet tall and 1000 pounds, he is still hard to see.
