I started training again, marathon training that is. It was a tough decision. I was getting used to having more time at home to chill out after ten days skipped. But I ran the other day, and then again today. Beat the heat and got my butt out there before sun-up.

And then, second day back, I saw tracks. Uh, huh. Tracks. Not little bunny rabbit tracks. No, the maker of these tracks would have had that little bunny rabbit as a snack and used its bones as toothpicks. Not even coyote tracks, an animal so ridiculously feared and misunderstood in the southwest that is would be humorous but for the danger to this mostly docile dogs. I would gladly have met up with a bunny, or a coyote, or a bird, or just about anything except that big cat that left the tracks.

Yep. One. Big. Cat.

A mountain lion. Also known as puma, catmount, or cougar depending on where you’re from, this is a large and scary critter. A sweet little kitty it is not.

But it is a fascinating animal and one that deserves protection. I hope it can tell I feel this way as it is deciding whether or not to eat me...

Hope you enjoy! And have a great day!!!!
