First Mountain Lion in a tree

What an amazing weekend we had with friends + I hope you had a good one as well. 

I guess I didn't realize I'd never seen a lion in a tree before. I've seen so many videos and photos that Dustin has shown me over the years, it didn't dawn on me that I hadn't actually been to the tree! 

Well, this weekend changed that. Dustin texted a little after 9 am to say they think they started something and to be on standby if I wanted to come. 

There was a lot of commentary happening in my head. For those of you who know me, know that I hate the cold. This is why I haven't gone lion hunting before, but as the girls and Jack are getting more interested, I think my days of staying home all winter being cozy are also coming to an end! 

Anyways, I went back and forth between wanting to go to support him and not wanting to brave the weather. 

He called back around 11 am and told me to head his way so I hurried and got dressed and as I was about to leave Kayden's wife, Jaysi called to ask if I was going so I bopped over and picked her up too! 

Luckily, it was a beautiful 50 degree day and there's very little snow on the ground. 

Funny thing though, Dustin said when he called me the first question I asked was how far I had to hike and that was Jaysi's very first question as well! ha

Needless to say, it was nice to get out of the house, see my first lion on the mountain, and spend some time hiking with good friends.

Thanks so much for being here!
