My wife, a Wildlife Biologist here in SoCal, and I took a great hike today at the Santa Rosa Plateau. We like to go to as far away from the people as we can, so we hike as far in as we can. Mostly rolling hills, lots of flowers, and awesome scenery. Today was pretty neat as we ran into some fresh Mountain Lion Tracks. We took a couple of pics, measured, took a waypoint for her work and I thought you may want to see them.
As a note, we have only seen one Mountain Lion in over 11 years of hiking the Plateau......and that was one day when we were in our car leaving the Plateau. It was along the side of the main road and we pulled over. It stopped, sat down and just watched us.
TICKS! After the hike, I pulled a tick out of my leg. It was way up my leg. My wife pulled one out a couple of weeks ago, and we pulled one out of our dog last week....so I guess, it's officially Tick Season.
