The plant is wild strawberry. Very tasty berries in season!
The animal really is a moose. Not native to Colorado, but transplanted. I was really surprised to find this out when I went back for a visit last year. However, it appears that moose are generally moving south on their own. Out here in the Northwest, there have been quite a few sightings in the Washington Cascades, farther south every year. No doubt some will one day sneak across the Columbia River and make it to Oregon.
