Thanks for your comments.
@Chard I heard the moose before i saw him. Strange call, twice, I thought maybe a crane or something. Walk a little. Then a woof, i thought maybe a bear. Start talking: "just a guy, not a meal, no harm to anyone, just walking here", then look up and see this guy on the knoll above me. Yikes! Backed off. Waited 5 minutes. Heard him move off. Continued. As I passed the knoll I looked up for him--he was on the other side of the trail about 10 metres downhill giving me the evil eye. Biggest moose i've ever seen, and I've seen lots, but always from canoes or cars. Had enough adrenaline to hike up the next two hills effortlessly...
@ Bubba PM me if you have any questions. For future reference, I recorded times for me to walk each section. I hike slowly, but it might be useful to you.
@ Blaze Away Thank you. I've always enjoyed your reports from the islands of Denmark. I'm not ready for video, though.
@ Veto96, Bloomgorge, Raiffnuke: If you want to see moose, this is the place--prime moose habitat. I don't know anyone who has overnighted in Algonquin on foot or by canoe who hasn't seen a moose.
