Inland Northwest bucket list: moose chase

This bull moose let hikers know he didn't want them getting any closer to a cow moose he was courting (dark spot in the background) in the Dishman Hills on Sept. 26.  Laura Visco snapped this photo as she backed away,
This bull moose let hikers know he didn't want them getting any closer to a cow moose he was courting (dark spot in the background) in the Dishman Hills on Sept. 26. Laura Visco snapped this photo as she backed away, "and I wasn't using telephoto," she said. The bull and cow later ran at the group forcing them to take refuge in rock cliffs and going off-trail to get out of the area. (Photo by Laura Visco) (Photo Visco / The Spokesman Review)

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- I was minding my own business running through the woods near my South Side house this morning at 5:30 a.m. with my dog when the yearling bull moose started chasing us.

Your bucket list isn't complete unless you've had that thrilling experience.

Lesson: Never be far from a big ponderosa pine in moose country.
