A rare visitor was a mountain lion that yowled twice at 6:22 AM (just like in the movies, and yes, they are here as Linda saw one while hiking two miles from her house). A less rare visitor are bears. Linda almost ran over a small 10-inch-high cub as it ran in front of her car and down her driveway. If you put out bird feeders, don’t, as mama bear will take them. As for the baby bear, when it had grown to about 12-14 inches, it checked out the kayak, first sniffing and licking it, then jumping on and clawing it. Since the kayak was neither edible nor playful, the cub ran off! Linda thinks there is a nursery tree on her neighbor’s property where mama bear leaves baby while she eats.
