Annadel Park would give me my first real test of how the boots work on trails that can be rocky.

At the entrance to Cobblestone Trail the Park Service posted a sign warning hikers that they may encounter a mountain lion on the trail.
|I've never seen a mountain lion in Annadel Park|
I saw this large scat on the trail near the place where Cobblestone Trail meets Rough Go Trail.
|The key is for size reference. Furry scat, from an animal about as big as an adult human.|
I thought that this scat may have been left by a mountain lion. Someone with more experience with large carnivorous mammals might be able to say with more authority what I saw.
|A break about halfway through at the trail junction|
Here's a map of the route I hiked today.
