The new AvidBackpackers Guestbook

Hello out there fellow backpackers and hikers. I am writing as I am in desperate need of fellow outdoorsman to be on the lookout or to rally a save Murphy hike. Murphy is a five year old golden retriever that was lost Oct 6 2012 at Hellhole Reservoir. She ran off when she heard gunshots in the area. She could be anywhere by now, but it is imperative that people in the area be on the lookout for her this week, as a winter storm is approaching due to arrive Wed. night on the 7th of November. Her owner's name is Nathan Braun. That number is (916) 717-8400. They were camping in an area that has a river by it?! I am unfamiliar with the area but I am willing to go out with rallied hikers if I can pull this off. My number is (530) 573-1332. I am in South Lake Tahoe. My goal is to rally a group of hikers by tomorrow or Wed. I realize this is late notice, but I just found this site. Teresa

Thanks for the kind words on the site. To answer your question, no we haven't run into any mountain lions lately. The two that I have seen in Sunol were both midweek with not many/any people on the trail. Both encounters the lion ran off without me having to really do anything but think about getting my camera out. Unfortuantely they are quick, and by the time my brain registered take a picture of the lion they were gone.

Great stuff on here guys! Just wanted to know, have you ran into any mountain lions recently? If so where and did they exhibit any aggressive behavior?

Thanks and happy trails!

Thanks for the comment Chris. You are correct that there was a fair amount of litter up there. I always try to take some back with me and dispose of it properly as well. I am not sure what people are thinking when they litter on the trail, well anywhere really but especially on the trail.

Hi Mark -

Nice write up on Mission Peak! One thing that you did not mention (which might be a good thing) in addition to the graffiti is the litter (at the peak and on the trail). In August and September I was hiking up there a lot (training for Half Dome) and finally got to the point where I would bring a trash bag so I could haul down the empty bottles, food wrappers and other whathaveyou. As I was doing double-hikes (up and back twice) I'd pick up junk on the first run, then there'd be more when I returned less than three hours later . :!mad:
