Mountain lion prints

I found these mountain lion tracks on the trail about 3/4ths of the way into a 4 mile round trip hike in the high desert today. There is a hiking boot print just next to the left paw print. Big Bend NP warns visitors about mountain lions as they are prevalent in the mountain areas.

I was out in the open so I wasn't concerned, plus I am used to hiking in mountain lion country. This is definitely a species that is found in SE Colorado and I have seen 2 mountain lions while out birding near Canon City. SeEtta
