Old Greybeard at Lake Christine

When we first started coming to Lake Christine, near Lutsen, MN, on a regular basis. The moose were easier to see and Old Greybeard, a mistress of the area, was a well known sight.

She was known to have twins almost every year and would raise them, during the earlier part of the summer, in and around the lake. We would most often see just her, eating the tender cedar branches hanging over the water, but caught glimpses of her twins once in a while as well.

I think it was two years ago that we heard she had died. I believe there was a rumor of both her death from simple old age as well as her having been shot by a hunter with a moose license. Either way, the result was the same, she doesn’t show up across the lake from where we stay anymore.
