The Moose Pond

The “moose pond” is a seasonal branch of the Kennicott River. This is a popular swimming spot for humans and moose alike. This picture was taken during a rare moment of calm water. When not rippled by the wind, peppered by mosquito, or disturbed by rain, the pond reflects the Bonanza Ridge and Porphory Mountain in the distance. While shuttle driving I pass this spot numerous times a day. Today I was able to stop and admire the view and snap this picture.
