Warning of possible Mountain Lion at Stonewall Mine today

Good evening,

Camille and I headed to Stonewall Mine today for the Williamson's Sapsucker and while walking up the hill towards the restrooms, there was a loud growl coming from the bushes just uphill from the restrooms.  There was a second Growl and Camille afterwards, heard a Chuff type of sound.  We never saw the animal and obviously, it wan't very aggressive so this was probably more of a warning growl but after coming back home and listening to recordings, we are pretty certain that this was a mountain Lion.  Please be cautious if you go up there and probably best not to go alone.
