Looking for Moose near Moosehead Lake in Maine

We headed up for 4 days to Moosehead Lake and the Northern Woods of Maine to see if we could see a moose.
As it turns out we saw about 22 of them!

4 moose in quarry area where salt stored
There were 4 moose in this quarry area where the road crew stored their salt during the winter.
The one kneeling was very young. The others were watching over it.
This is unusual as I have heard that bull moose do not hang out with others and clearly there were some bulls in the group.

This is where we stayed. A nice cabin right on the lake in Rockwood with a view of Mt Kineo.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw this deer swimming across the river.
We stopped and were able to get a few pictures before it made it into the woods.
