Everyone visiting Maine in the summer hopes to see a moose. This family got up close and personal with a large moose while canoeing in Kakadjo.

Sarah Christopher snapped this awesome photo of her mother-in-law and son on a recent canoe trip. The swimming moose came just a few feet away from their boat creating a photo op that was too hard to resist.

The family was in awe of the size and how friendly the moose was. In Maine female moose weigh and average of 900lbs with males weighing about 1200-1500lbs.
