Today I hiked the trail just down the street from my apartment. I’ve hiked this trail plenty of times but a few weeks ago Jon pointed out to me that the trail goes through potential mountain lion territory. He also pointed out that the sign at the trail head points that out too – guess I never noticed.
So maybe it’s just that momma bear instinct kicking in since I had Cameron with me, but I literally spent most of my hike thinking about potential plans of action in case I ran into a mountain lion. I felt a little silly, but I even found a sharp stick that I carried with me the entire time.
Glad I didn’t need to use it!
