On a hike yesterday I took off cross country through the tall dried grasses staying away from the well-used trails. There in the middle of a large meadow, upon a bare outcropping of rock I found what is definitely Mountain Lion scat. I see a lot of other scat but here for sure this was Mountain Lion. I thought it interesting that he/she chose the bare rock to do their business rather than in the dirt like a regular domestic cat would, or even just in the grass itself.
For size reference I placed my cellphone alongside. I couldn't think of anything else to use and I wasn't about to set my apple next to it.
I long for the day to actually see the cat. Even just a Bobcat I would be happy.
Now I am wondering if that may have been Bobcat scat. I so want to believe Mountain Lion.
