Please don't mistake me for a deer!
Gulp! This gruesome sight met us one afternoon this week when my brother and I were out for a hike. If you look in the distance, you'll see just how close we were to the Silicon Valley. In the background you're looking at Moffett Field, home of NASA-Ames Research Facility, and downtown San Jose. A few short miles from there, along Monte Bello Ridge, we came across what appears to be a fairly fresh mountain lion kill.
So--I'll confine my trail running to parks with lots of folks around, or to these trails only with a buddy or two. Sure don't want to be mistaken for a deer!
