A thin gap in the clouds on the eastern horizon let us see the sunrise light very briefly this morning.
I followed my old tracks and the new lion tracks on top of them into a clearing where I have a trail camera. The camera saw a long flowing tail...
Interestingly, one of the last sets of photos that I captured of the mother mountain lion with her kitten included the mother leaving some urine as a marker. I thought that it was odd, and then I wondered if her kitten was getting close to becoming independent and, therefore, she was starting to mark so that male suitors could find her.
I sure do hope that this good mother mountain lion manages to attract a mate and raises another kitten in our neck of the woods!
