Back on the Mountain, Part 5
Rich and I met on the mountain the day before the 4th of July. There was no time for an overnighter, so we hit the trail a little before noon, and finished at 6:00.
The cams had been out for 2 months, and I was sure the batteries would be dead, but the auxiliary D cells were still going, though barely.
We collected the cams, so I would have some extras for the workshop, and replaced them with Rich's new cams.
The trail-scat set seen here is the most productive location. There were 144 exposures, and the puma was one of the new species. There were only two exposures, but both were full body images. The scat gets their attention long enough for the camera to power up and snap a picture -- about 3-4 seconds.
I'll post a few other shots of interest in the next few days.
