Geocache Description:

The Information Super Highway Series, with an array of information from the World Wide Web! Off of the bike path along The Circumferential Highway! Bike or walk this trail connecting Nashua and Hudson! A Nice area to take a stroll, where you will not run into one of these...

In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada (excluding the arctic), most of Alaska, northern New England and upstate New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northeastern Minnesota, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale in Lake Superior. Within this massive range, the most diverse range of subspecies exist, containing habitat for four of the six subspecies. In western portions of the continent, moose populations extend well north into Canada (British Columbia and Alberta) and more isolated groups have been verified as far south as the mountains of Utah and Colorado and as far west as the Lake Wenatchee area of the Washington Cascades.

In Northeastern North America, the Eastern moose's history is very well documented: moose meat was often a staple in the diet of Native Americans going back centuries and it is a tribe that occupied present day coastal Rhode Island that gave this deer its distinctive name in American English.

The historical range of the subspecies extended from well into Quebec, the Maritimes, and Eastern Ontario south to include all of New England finally ending in the very northeastern tip of Pennsylvania in the west, cutting off somewhere near the mouth of the Hudson River in the east.

I have yet to see a Moose myself, except in the Manchester Airport! I hope Geocaching changes that! Please include a picture if you have encountered one of these creatures! As I will when my day comes!

Please Bring Tweezers, to get the log out!
This is a Muggled Area, the need for stealth can not be suggested enough.
The Hint is a spoiler, so don't use it, unless desperate.

Congratulations to CycloneSteve on the FTF!
Honorable Mention to Copleymagic on the STF!
