Awesome!

I'm jealous. Must have been exhilirating.

Re: Awesome!

Thanks. Go to 14ers.com and look at my forum. A whole lot of opinions are being posted. By the way very scary, but very as you say exhilirating!

How far from Emory?

Jessicahiker,
How far were you from the Emory cutoff at this point? I know in the 14ers forum you stated you thought about a quarter mile.
Do you know if you were you south of the Corral at this point? Were you south of the Juniper canyon split?
I imagine it was scary.
Seem to be a variety of opinions over at 14ers.com, to say the least.
They sort of hijacked your thread.
Once again, Congrats and thanks for sharing.

He walked up the trail to within I would say 25 feet of the Bear bins. After he jumped back across the trail, we could hear the talking going on at the bins. We first saw him I would say now maybe less than a quarter mile from the bins.

Too Cool!

I so bad would like to glimpse a mountain lion in the wild. And you did it at Big Bend, my second most favorite national park (My son and I have been to 41 of the 58). Congrats for getting a cool pic! --mark d.

We were back in Big Bend in September, hoping for history to repeat itself, did not happen.
