My best friend and I went camping one weekend and we decided to hike one of the trails close to the mountain. There is a huge sign at the beginning of the trail stating everyone should be careful to watch for mountain lions and bears. Although they don’t regularly attack, there have been a few reports of activity. Jack and I hiked three or four miles before we saw any signs of life on the trail. Unfortunately, the first sign of life on the trail turned out to be a mountain lion. Jack and I came across the mountain lion about an hour before sundown. The mountain lion was being quiet and then he started chasing us. Both of us were running as fast as we could and the mountain lion was gaining on us with every step that we took. Jack and I managed to find a tree with low branches and we climbed as high as possible. Every time the mountain lion tried to climb that tree, Jack and I used our feet to kick it in the face. Once we were in the tree and far from the lion, Jack and I got comfortable. The mountain lion stood at the base of the tree for almost an hour. Jack and I lit up a marijuana joint. We weren’t going anywhere for a while. As soon as the mountain lion smelled the marijuana, he started pacing faster and faster. After two or three minutes, the mountain lion disappeared and walked away. I guess the animal didn’t like the smell of marijuana.
