^^^ I heard you guys saw a bobcat on the trail, too fast for a photo though. Is that right?

A rather testy Yeti was sighted multiple times :mrgreen:

You can find them in the shade hydrating around noon most days

nice and quiet last night, only saw rabbits and owls. Heard many frogs. Literally passed no one else on the trails, but I did see some hikers with headlamps descending the volcano on the west side as I crossed the Dam. I was out there between 8 and 9pm.

The Urban Yeti is a very different animal. They can be elusive, seen scampering alone, in a small group of Yeti's and mostly seen in a pack. The Urban Yeti consumes Oats, hops, and grains plus known to enjoy beef and pickled Okra. Many Yeti gather items to share with fellow Yeti
They are mostly seen near concrete pads and coolers. Their distinctive "Yehowwwww" when chasing down other yetis can be heard for miles. The younger Urban Yeti can be quiet animals and are rarely seen when being chased. Fast and strong creatures for sure. Trying to catch a younger Yeti has shown to be a huge risk and may cause injury to those who dare to try.

The Urban Yeti are good for the habitat. They tend to increase the enjoyment of other Yeti's in the area with their playful manner. With the kind nature of the Urban Yeti, they often get other Yeti in the area to join in their group. This behavior is called "Book clubbing" and is often done during the day.

Groups such as the CDFW have been attempting for years to diminish the Yeti population but thankfully, they are making a strong come back. Organizations like Stone, Santa Cruz, Mammoth Brewing, and many others aid in the health of the Urban Yeti population today.

We all should strive to become a Urban Yeti. The world will be a better place for all

This leads us back to the CDFW, aka, “Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasel”. One should typically take pains to avoid encounters with the Diminutive Fidget Weasel. While they do not pose a threat of any real consequence, an interaction with a CDFW can contribute to feelings of frustration, irritation, and overall reduction of the enjoyment of nature.

Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasels have particularly nasty personalities, (in contrast to many non-coastal varieties of the species). For this reason they are commonly referred to as “Golems”, “Grinches” and “Trolls”. Their diet consists primarily of “second harvest” and poison oak. This makes them easy to avoid however, since they emit a particularly noxious odor.

They are known to go out of their way if they believe they can negatively impact the generally good and gentle nature of roaming groups of Urban YETI. In fact, there are even reports that they will take a “scorched Earth” approach to the destruction of preferred YETI habitat.

Reportedly, Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasels have a preference for creating flat wide trails and often prefer to travel on established fire roads, particularly right after a heavy rain period. They seem to enjoy creating deep indentations in the muddy soil in an effort to make their presence known, well after they have exited the area.

While their malodorous nature lends itself to destructive behaviors, they do have the capacity to build. Unfortunately, observation shows they primarily enjoy building long barriers that scar the land, in an attempt to create their own private habitat. It has proven to be a useless endeavor and it is not yet known what compels them toward this behavior.

Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasels are typically a reclusive anti-social ‘loner’ species. Often, a single Fidget Weasel will be the only CDFW within a large area of land. This is good news for all the other creatures, although rather sad for the Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasel since the other animals can scarcely tolerate their unpleasant and disagreeable nature.

Of note; during rutting season, the temperament of the CDFW becomes particularly hostile and destructive. They have been known to incorporate tools to aggressively destroy the beautiful trail systems that were created by Urban YETI for the use of all creatures to enjoy in harmony. Thankfully, studies show that this behavior is often short-lived. After wreaking havoc within an area, they may disappear for years in between rutting seasons, with their walls and barriers as the only trace left behind.

If you encounter a Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasel while out enjoying nature, it is best to give them a wide berth. There are reports that this Coastal variety may camouflage themselves and lay in wait, in a rather sneaky behavior designed to confront Urban YETI. In those instances, because CDFW are a slothful and slow-moving creature, one can typically speed away without fear of a hostile encounter.

The Coastal Diminutive Fidget Weasel is still evolving. There is evidence that someday, they may develop greater mental capacity, a friendlier temperament and improved social skills. Scientists are exploring methods to accelerate this development, as it would lead toward their holistic integration into the system, to the great benefit of Urban YETI and overall enjoyment for all other creatures.

*Studies show that other non-coastal varieties of the DFW species exhibit much greater intelligence and positive disposition.
