Cougar encounters are rare

Great to see these shots of such a beautiful animal. I do a lot of hillwalking in my home country and I'm pleased to say the wildlife is almost entirely harmless.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for looking and commenting. I do a lot of hiking and mountain biking in the local mountains. I have seen mountain lions, deer and bobcats on rare occasions. I've never seen one this big though. Most of what I see is pretty harmless too. And all of these critters move away when they spot us. So Cal is pretty dry and arid. We don't have the abundant plant and animal life they have in the northern US.
