Mountain lion skull found N of Bonanza Peak. The skulls are fairly small (8" long), even for adults, and are distinguished in part by the "keel" on the top of the skull.

That's an old pic. I can give you a GPS with the approximate route we took that day, but we were in the shadow of a mt, not getting the best satellite fix. I wish I'd marked a waypoint.

MoapaPk: I'd like to complement you on your amazing discovery. Sounds like you use GPS quite a bit. That's great. The only time I had seen a LIVE mountain lion was in southern Arizona back in 1994, when I was a member of a NPS trail crew working in the Rincon Mtns. HEY, GREAT FIND! Did you hear about what climbers recently found on the north side of Mount Mendal in the Sierra Nevada? THANKS !!!

I didn't hear....

That's the second mt lion skull I've found; the other was on Bosque Peak S of Albuquerque, NM. The only Mt Lion I've "seen" in the wild was a tawny flash across our campsite. S/he expresses great displeasure that night, with a most incessant wailing/hissing sound.

An AT-7 (military plane) out of Sacramento crashed 300-ft. below the summit of Mt. Mendal in Nov. 1942 - the body of another lost airmen was found there this past summer. Still had his parachute on.
