High Country News is a great periodical about issues and people in the West.

gb...that's  a cool article.  There is indeed a mystic about cougars.   I've lived in the NW for 45 years now and hiked all over the place. Still have never seen a cougar in the wild.  I did a work party with WTA at Prince Creek on Lake Chelan a number of years ago.  We went up to work the trail up Prince and when finished for the day, a ranger person working with us asked me if I'd like to hike up further to see the washed out bridge.   She was a small framed woman, and we walked awhile until we came to an uphill cliff area.  There was a deer forelimb on the trail and my hair stood up on my neck.  She came up to me and asked me to stay near here.   We both felt as though we were being watched although we say nothing.  We got to the bridge site and returned down the trail and again felt watched and the ranger again stayed near me.  The deer forelimb was gone with big pug marks all around it although we had only been gone from it a few minutes.  I still look forward with anticipation to actually being lucky enough to spot a cat. Thanks for posting this article! cool.gif
