I like to hang out at the Chautauqua Ranger Cottage. It’s a great (and beautiful) place to meet visitors to our fair City and to learn a lot from staff members. For example, I was given the following research report from Jake yesterday. It’s a neat fact to keep in mind when encountering a Mountain Lion phobic person on the trail….
“Since 1880 there have been 17 people killed by mountain lions in the USA and Canada. Since 1980 there have been 26 people killed by kitchen stoves.”
So get out of the kitchen and hike to safety!!
