Tonight was a beautiful evening for a run...24 degrees and the air felt fresh. We did the same 10km loop as Sunday. We were the only car in the parking lot and it felt like we were alone in the forest. The trail takes a sharp climb up for 5km. As we were climbing the 5km up I looked up at one point and saw a Bobcat coming down the forest road toward us. I tried to get Neil's attention by calling his name...Neil, Neil...look...look...a cat...we stopped running and it stopped as well. We had a brief stare at each other before it headed into the woods. We were able to have a good look at it's features. Very similar to our domestic cat at home just larger and pointed ears. We identified it right away as a Bobcat but then started thinking maybe it was a baby cougar and mother cougar was close by. Neil started running and I was close behind!
Beautiful sighting! I hear there are some wild cats in Scotland too!
