On a recent visit, photographer Kevin Powell had an exciting encounter. While hiking near Quail Mountain, Kevin noticed a small group of bighorn sheep on the slopes nearby. There was another close observer of this group of bighorn – a mountain lion (Felis concolor). This cat, one of the rarest permanent residents seen in the park, was on the hunt and stalking the sheep.Find out for yourself why they are so rarely seen - see if you can spot the mountain lion in the image below.Can’t find the lion?
