That's what you get for seeking the choss assiduously!!!
Seriously though, great pictures, and that is one HUGE kitty. I'd have peed a little. Then fled through the patches of ivy and claimed he's photoshopped when I got home.

That pic makes me think of all the times I stumbled out of the rattle horn in the dark last season. Its pretty wild in that canyon for being called city creek.

That's an awesome experience seeing a cougar in the wild! I've always wanted to see one, but have yet to - despite being out in the wilds many many days and nights of the year.

I rated this photo 5 starts due to the fact that you took a great photo of an animal while it was trying to figure out how to eat you. Wow!

Good capture. I've never seen a cougar in the wild. I wonder how many have seen me.

They call them ghost cats for a reason. For sure this cat wanted no part of you. If it wanted to attack, you wouldn't ever see it coming. Amazing creatures! Awesome photo.

Wow. All the time we spent there creating and climbing the routes, then going back for fitness "burns", never saw one.
