Me and Kris were skiing today, and sitting on a ski lift when we looked down on the slope, and saw a lynx! This big cat with funky ears was just slowly walking around next to the slope and checking things out. We were so excited to see such a rare creature. The lynx was huge, bigger than our dog, and leaving big paw prints in the snow with paws bigger than Rotweiler’s.

There are reportedly two lynxes living around Purgatory, but even after talking with the local skiers, they are not spotted that often, so today was a really special day.

    VERY cool! A little unnerving (it would be for me, anyway!), but still very cool.
