Today in Mountain Lion

All Photos by Ellen Green 12/22/11

These photos were taken at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, the one great place to get a close look at these magnificent creatures. They are not nice kitties, though. Click on the photos for a larger view and note the size of those paws. One swipe will do you in.
Tram driver Cindy stopped Carol and me this morning to let us know that she (and her passengers) had seen a mountain lion and three cubs near stop eight. Let this serve as a reminder to pay attention and especially to keep children close by when you are out and about in Sabino Canyon. The cubs will be learning to hunt. Don't make yourself easy prey.

  1. When you say "near" stop 8-what exactly does this mean with regard to actual distance?! YIKES!
