A short blog post. A couple of weeks ago, we hiked up into Flat Bottom Canyon and placed my trailcam on a tree near one of the jeep trails. We hiked up there today (a hard hike: 4.5 miles round trip, and 1300 feet of climbing) and extracted the memory card from the trailcam. Much to our surprise/wonder/amazement/joy, we found several photos with cougars in them in the bunch, and made this animated gif:cougars2

These photos were taken LAST NIGHT (9/17) at nearly the same time (just after sunset) we were there tonight. Hmmm. I wonder if they were watching us …

UPDATE: Apparently, there is some confusion about how many cougars are actually in the GIF I posted above. Here’s a single picture showing the three cougars that passed through:
