An adult Mountain Lion (Puma concolor) rests in the woods on the edge of a rocky ledge at the entrance of Glendale Cove off Knight Inlet on the west coast of Canada.

We were on a wildlife tour, primarily for Grizzly Bear, with Tide Rip Grizzly Tours out of Telegraph Cove on the northeast tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

It is a boat tour which holds about 10 people and you are out for most of the day. If I remember, it is about 90 minutes travel to Glendale Cove but you never know what you may encounter. In this case, it was their first Mountain Lion observation and we had about 5 minutes as it patiently observed us and the surrounding area before disappearing into the woods.

It is something I will never forget, thankfully with some photos to remind me of that once in a lifetime observation.
