Several decades ago I was hunting bears in the Sierra. It was dusk and I walked down a dusty dirt road looking for bear tracks. After about an hour, I turned around and began walking back to my camp. Looking at my tracks in the dusty road, I discovered mountain lion tracks right over the top of my footprints! A lion had tracked me for over two miles. I had no clue he was there.
