This is an area where a big population of cougar live. Small caves big enough for a mother with cubs for shelter, and rocky outcrops and steep cliffs, make the area prime habitat for the cougars. They hunt mainly the deer, and the mountain goats the roam the area to eat on the vegetation, and wild flowers. But they have no problem taking on a horse if they're too hasty about wandering into their domain. Not a place for mares with foals, only the strong, and brave come through here.
