SUMMIT PARK, Utah - A playful moose was caught on camera by Nanci Done-Nemeth taking a dip in a pond near Summit Park, Utah.

The pond is at Gorgoza Park just off of Interstate 80 in Summit County, and has a trail that is a favorite hike among locals.

With temperatures on Thursday in the mid 90s, the water proved a temping place for the moose to splash around in and cool off from the summer heat.
