Cow & 2 calves at Sutton

While heading into Anchorage this afternoon I made my usual stop at the Hilltop Station just west of Sutton. I did not see the moose cow and her two calves until after I had pulled in, but I was puzzled by all the cars stopped by the road in front of the place. It was hard to get in. Fortunately, I had my trusty camera with me.

These animals were not too shy. I felt I was really taking a chance getting up close enough to get these, but there WERE others who had been closer (by the gas pumps).
