Adventure Photographer Laura Lyn caught footage of an adorable moose family causing a “traffic jam” in the Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. Laura posted the video to Instagram showing the mother moose and her two calves walking down the center line of a road through the Park.

Speaking to Storyful about the family, Laura explained: “These moose calves were a little less than a week old following mom. In the springtime, the moose drop their calves and only about 10% of these calves make it to be an adult in Denali National Park”.

Laura is currently completing her project 100 days in Denali National Park in celebration of the parks centennial anniversary.

The Alaska moose, also known as giant moose or Alaskan moose, is a subspecies of moose that ranges from Alaska to western Yukon. The Alaska moose is the largest North American subspecies of moose. Alaska moose inhabit boreal forests and mixed deciduous forests throughout most of Alaska and most of Western Yukon. Like all moose species, the Alaska moose is usually solitary but sometimes will form small herds. Typically, they only come into contact with other moose for mating or competition for mates. During mating season, in autumn and winter, male Alaska moose become very aggressive and prone to attacking when startled.
