photoblog image Bald Mountain

Bald Mountain

This is the old cattle corral. In the back ground you can see Bald Mountain. When I was a kid we used to hike all over this mountain. My father stopped using this corrral when I was young. They used to bring the cattle in from pasture and fatten them up in the corrals and then ship them off to market. Now the corrrals are over grown with over head high sage brush. Dear, coyotes and mountain lions now enjoy maknig these corrals their homes.

Well ihope the deer, coyote and mountain lion don't go into the same corral at once - it would be a bloody party smile

The colours in this picture are great. Excellent post.
John Eagle: Actually...

I should have known better...

I went into the corrals knowing this. BUT I had not seen a mountain lion in the area ever. Even as a child or youth. I had seen bob cats, coyotes, dear, rabbits quail pheasant etc. So I am in there photographing all the old rusty farm equipment possibly hoping for a dear bobcat or coyote. No luck. I am following the dear trails otherwise it is almost impossible to navigate. And I keep coming across bones. At first small ones, vertebrae, skulls. Then Hair, dear hair and larger bones. TOO large for a bobcat to have been responsible for. I hoped it was something a pack of coyotes had done. Still yet more bones larger and large. I started to get scarred. It was getting dark. I LEFT!

So that night at dinner my said: Oh by the way, while you are out taking pictures don’t go into the sage brush in the corrals, a mountain lion lives there now. :O

Can’t wait to go back.

That's a good story, John. You be careful, now, when you go back!
