Is that cool or what! We see Cougar tracks in the Cascades and Olympic mountains in winter, but in all my years hiking have only seen one in person. I absolutely love the fact that we have wilderness land where these animals can thrive. I know of no cases locally where people have been attacked. (I know of cases in California, but none in Washington State). They are really deadly predators, thank heavens they shy away from us humans.
