10/29/17 What would you do? Josh and I were out enjoying the gorgeous afternoon peacefulness as we ascended to OC. At the Cadillac junction we come across 2 MTB'rs, a Dad and his Son, who had just traversed Harding-Joplin. They told us they had an encounter with a Mtn Lion down in OC. They thought the ML may have been stalking them as they took a breather and water break just above the OC campsite. The ML did not run off, but did disappear into the brush. As they tore out of there, they told 2 hikers who were approaching the top of OC. We kept going, at first undaunted. Then we came across the hikers on their descent and they indicated they also saw the ML, but we passed too quickly for any kind of report. I'm usually game for seeing wildlife, especially ML, but coming nose to nose with one somehow did not feel advisable, we stopped at the first telephone pole and hung out a bit. It was getting dark and we half-expected to see the ML come trotting around the blind corner. What then? Great Ride!
