The above photo (click to enlarge) was taken during an overflight to monitor conditions on the Yukon River, 12 miles downriver from Galena. U.S. Fish and Wildlife pilot Brad Scotton watched as Maynard floated down the Yukon River on an ever shrinking sheet of ice. Unfortunately, Scotton had to turn back and so we're left to wonder if Maynard the Moose made it off the ice or not. They're pretty adept at swimming so we'll hope Maynard made it to shore and is now working his way home.
The next time you think you're up the creek without a paddle, think of Mayanrd the Moose and remember it could always be worse!
