This is the view from Inspiration point (or rather a few yards to the north), on a day with pretty rapidly changing lighting conditions. The trail from Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls was trecherous and covered with 2 feet of snow packed down by countless visitors' feet into a hard, slippery crust. But past the waterfall the trail gets direct sunlight and was mostly clear.

Note the nursing baby moose and mother at the left. When we came up we found folks looking at the baby off in the distance, and while I was taking this panorama the mother returned. She watched from about 10 feet away from the calf for a while, then the calf recognized her and stood up and nursed. Finally they both lay down together.

I thought all the boldfaced warnings at the parking lot, etc., about not getting too close to wildlife were obvious and overhyped, but sure enough, while waiting for the pan to complete I watched one group of hikers act like they were going to walk right up to the moose. Fortunately, they were responsive when I suggested that might not be such a good idea. (duh!)
