Soon after our first big snow of the year, a mother led her two kittens past a scent post. They lingered in front of the camera but looked far more serious about life than before winter arrived.
Mom appeared first. She looks strong but not huge.
Close behind her, two kittens appeared. There was no frolicking or play - all three of them seemed serious.
As they passed my cam, the kittens paused.
The second one sniffed the air as he paused. Soon, he followed his family.
I adore seeing our mountain lions! Check out the short video if you have time. Seeing daytime footage of our lions is always a treat.
