His hind paw kicks were so storng that he left a big pile of pine needles when he was done. That pile is still obvious and could last well into 2019. It provides a visual landmark for where he marked so that we can understand what other animals are investigating.
A bobcat came through about three weeks later. He made a dramatic entrance that highlighted his tail.
Then, he sauntered toward the pine needle pile left by the mountain lion a few weeks earlier. I cropped the next photo exactly how I cropped the mountain lion photos so that we could compare their sizes.
I made a brief video of the visits by both of these cats to this scent marking area. You can see the mountain lion mark and then the bobcat investigate the area almost three weeks later.
