I find myself torn over wanting to see a lion. I am sure it was tres cool, but at the same I wonder if it would be terrifying under many situations.

When I was in Glacier N.P. in 2017 the campground host told me that the year before a lion came into camp and killed one of a small group of deer that would frequent the campground. They believe heavy spring snow at higher elevations forced the cat down to find food. I got this vision of getting out of my tent only to find a hungry big cat licking its lips.
