So here we were about a mile into the morning hobble. It was definitely a hobble this morning. As the OFM was crossing from the first hill down into a small plain area he noticed a black object off to the left about a hundred yards in the grass. Then he realized it was looking at us. Then he realized it was a cat head. Then the critter stood up and it was definitely a large black cat. Our size guess was about the height of a German Shepard. But the all black had us worried that it was a juvenile mountain lion from next door in Mexico.
So we paused to check out the situation. Since it was all black we did not think it was a bobcat. It was also larger than our normal bobcat. So we took several pictures and eased our way back to Sierra.
When we got the pictures into the computer and brought up on screen, the OFM realized the black was caused by the sun being behind the cat and in our eyes. As soon as the first picture got opened on the computer, it was obviously a normal colored HUGE bobcat. See for yourself. These are telephoto shots that have been enlarged.
Anyway we spent most of the day trying to make some sort of plan of what to do for the rest of the year for trying to have tooooo much fun.
