Guest Tom Kompier was walking on the Lost Trail yesterday when he encountered a Puma on the trail! Tom writes:
“I found myself all of a sudden eye to eye with a mountain lion! What an adreneline rush! It was about 80m away standing smack in the middle of the trail, then moved to the side, but started to walk towards me. As it was already quite close I decided not to grab my camera, but rather to shout oi at it, before we reached a mexican standoff. It reacted by sauntering off into the forest. I do not know how often this happens, but I guess it is a once in a lifetime sort of thing. Lovely forest there too.”
What a way to end 2011!
