I'm a Chicken

...because I wanted to hike alone, just this once, to think and explore, and enjoy the beauty of this place this time of year. But, I encountered the sign about the mountain lions at the trailhead, and how you should walk in pairs, and I looked down at my 100-pound body, and realized I might be tasty (in a happy-meal sort of way), and it's a drought, and mountain lions are most certainly extra hungry right now. For me.

 Fact: I am a chicken. 

I slunk back to the car, drove to a populated, paved road that snakes along the train tracks and the coast. I walked there instead, and tried super hard not to chide myself out of enjoying the view.

Happy weekend, everyone!

I'm sure mountain lions like chicken very much, too. It sounds like you need a walking partner who will make a pact of silence for your walks, and you could have a mini-silent-retreat!
