adventures in nature

mt st helena … and puma sighting?!

Spent a good part of the day Sunday conquering Mt St Helena – found few feathered subject photo op’s, but some some amazing views both far and near.

Mt St Helena view from North peak

Highest peak in the SF Bay area at 4342′, though it was hazy we could see really far in all directions.

And what is this? Finally, a picture of the elusive cat that I’ve so yearned to catch a glimpse of?!! A mountain lion ready to pounce on an unsuspecting deer from the rocks above?!?

Alas, despite the striking resemblance to a lion in the photo, this ground squirrel is probably harmless. PROBABLY.
