Under Cover of Darkness


Under cover of darkness, a cougar left this print in a fresh molehill.

In our lower field.

Inside the fence.

Along the creek.

Almost five inches across, it dwarfed our pursuing dogs’ tracks.

Neighbors to the north have seen him. My husband and a neighbor to the east have smelled him.

I expect he’ll be back.


“For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.”

—Mark 4:22
