Last week I was hiking north on the AT in Shenandoah NP and before I got to Skyline Drive at the Sawmill Run overlook, as I was ascending up, I saw a bobcat walk out of the trees onto the trail ahead me and continue walking.
It was early morning and I did not see anyone else on the trail since Calf Mountain. There was a fairly good breeze and acorns were falling. That explains why the bobcat did not hear me. By the time I got my camera out it was almost gone. I kicked some rocks as I tried to catch up a bit for a better picture, but the cat made a quick little hop and vanished.
