A new neighbor posted this on Facebook yesterday.
"One of my girls said she saw a cougar outside our front door today about 4:00. Do they come into town often? This was in the area of 400 s 100 e, just off Main Street. She's not sure which way it went, keep a look out for it..."
Now I have 2 choices for my walk today.
I can go across the fields and go west from our house
I can walk to the Post Office, a mile away and where the cougar was spotted.
Two days ago I took a new trail. It was a game trail, very narrow with high sagebrush on either side and very remote.
It was a beautiful walk but I felt as if several eyes were watching me. I decided to take turns whistling and singing so as not to surprise an animal (or me).
Don't think that I will be going that direction for a while.
Happy trails to you my dear friends.
