The other night when I was camping in the sierra's, I'm sure i heard a lion VERY close by. I grabbed my headlight and found real hungry yellow-orange eyes looking back at me. Do you happen to know the different colors of animals eyes at night when they are relected back at you with light? Mountain lions,bob-cats,and bears.

Never forget your Walking Stick. It's great for balance on the trail, safety from critters, clearing the way, resting your pack, getting your food bag above the bears, etc. And now to take great photos with as a monopod: http://conta.cc/hXYy1K

Bonified? Seriously? Bona fide. Look it up. A worrisome error for a magazine.
