Sitting on a tree stump getting our wraps out we hear a rumble. Chris looks up at me hopefully and asks "Was that your stomach?".
I say (with complete confidence and slightly mocking his imagination) "No, that was Harley." and then add on in my wittiness "or it was a bear over in those trees. " (gesturing behind us).
We continue to eat and shortly hear another rumble only this one lasted for an eternity (maybe 5 seconds) and it was definitely not Harley. You know the sound a house cat will make when it's angry but not quite hissing yet, the one that says "back off before I get really mad"? It was like that... only slower... and deeper... and louder... and a hundred thousand times more intimidating.
Needless to say we packed up our lunch immediately and left the area with no too few backward and sideward glances.
It is a really cool sound to hear when you are in a zoo and the mountain lion is in a cage, not as cool up close and personal.
