Trails And Warnings


Sometimes there are warning signs in the parks and along the trails that remind us of how close to nature we are.
This is the Peavine Trail that runs along the east side of Watson Lake in Prescott. The mountain lion warning sign was at the junction with the Iron King Trail that connects Prescott and Prescott Valley, part of the rails to trails project.

That would get my attention. I understand those big cats will leap from high places upon unsuspecting hikers, joggers, bikers, etc.

This is the reason Chet and I let his little brothers tag along with us.

Not a good place to let the dog out!

It looks more like a road than a trial. I guess that's so the ambulance can get in after you've been attacked by the mountain lion! I guess I woke up in a gruesome mood this morning.

Although a danger, it is nice to see wild cats survive.

Did you see the series of articles in the Arizona Republic a few days ago about how wildlife officials caught the only known wild jaguar in the USA in southern Arizona, which was too stressful for the animal and resulted in his death? Tragic.

And then they lied and covered up about it. Scandalous.

I think Id keep my distance...if possible.

It's a good sign too to remind us that nature prevails!

I would far rather have the odd mountain lion that some of the people I encounter hereabouts.
