That's definitely a mountain lion track. Or the world's biggest mutant bobcat is at large.

We have mountain lions, called cougars around here, and they have more bothersome lately, a few having to be killed by wildlife folks for killing domestic livestock. I had one cross right in front of me on our trail as I was walking back to the house two years ago this month, I had to continue walking even though I did not see where it went. It was an experience I don't need to have again, it changed my sense of safety in our own 'back yard' woods. The local wildlife guy said there were many ranging where we live and probably they'd seen me before without me knowing it and I shouldn't stop walking in the woods. (Easy for him to say, he carries a gun!)

I'm an unabashed Nature and animal lover, but if I found cougar tracks in camp, I would seriously consider relocating! On the other hand, it's pretty cool!


side note:
for those in the NW, the Wilderness Awareness School is a wonderful place to learn about tracking, and they have a lot of family and kid programs, classes. Wilderness School

We took a great class from it's founder, Jon Young, years ago. He now lives and teaches in CA and all over the country and world. He is wonderful to learn from.
