Grand Canyon Bobcat
Many people are well aware of the large wildlife population in the Grand Canyon National Park. Ranging between Elk, Mule Deer, Mountain Goats, and an abundance of squirrels, it also includes the less commonly seen Mountain Lion and Bobcat.
This early morning, while walking the canyon's edge, another local photographer and I couldn't help but notice a number of squirrels barking. Yes, barking. This is a common warning sign to other squirrels that danger is near and to be on the lookout.
Now, they won't do that for people. So with a keen eye, I continued to follow the sounds while peering over the edge.
A few dozen yards down the way, I saw it. On the move, this Bobcat was walking the rim of the Grand Canyon just 10 feet below dozens of tourists taking in the morning sunrise.
