Emma Lake hike and cabin overnight, Powell River, BC

(C) Story and photos courtesy Francois Carpentier, special to duaneburnett.com

Francois Carpentier and Jason Vranjkovic went hiking with friends to Emma Lake in Powell River.

They saw two cougars on the way back. An adult and its cub. Around 8 weeks old.

The large adult was first next to the cub, but then run away into the night, leaving the baby behind, meowing loudly.

Then the cub came closer and closer to us, to finally stop roughly 4 feet from us. Cute and cuddly. About the size of an adult house cat. But much more muscular, with bigger eyes and ears.

We saw them on the way back from Emma Lake on Mainline road around mile 24-25. Roughly around the south side of Goat Lake.

We left to let both the adult and the cub reunite. It was raining so the photos are a bit foggy.

Baby cougars remain with their mother for up to the first two years of their lives.

Stunning video of Emerald Valley Snowy Mountain Hike

“The drive up on a dirt logging road is 2 hrs and the hike
up to the cabin is around 3 hrs from there… A really steep
grade for 3/4rs of the way. That is to the cabin. It is another
2-3 hrs. to get up to the top of where most of this video was shot.”

Francois Carpentier and Jason Vranjkovic went hiking with friends to Emma Lake in Powell River. They saw two cougars on the way back. An adult and its cub. Around 8 weeks old. The large adult was first next to the cub, but then run away into the night, leaving the baby behind, meowing loudly. Then the cub came closer and closer to us, to finally stop roughly 4 feet from us. Cute and cuddly. About the size of an adult house cat. But much more muscular, with bigger eyes, ears and paws. We saw them on the way back from Emma Lake on Mainline road around mile 24-25. Roughly around the south side of Goat Lake. We left to let both the adult and the cub reunite. It was raining so the photos are a bit foggy. Baby cougars remain with their mother for up to the first two years of their lives. Adult males are around 2.4 m (7.9 ft) long nose-to-tail, typically weigh 53 to 100 kg (115 to 220 lb).

 

I was taking photos with one hand and hiding a hunting knife in my other hand, plus a big can of bear spray at harm reach in my back, in case the large adult get any idea about trying to bite my head off. That was both beautiful and scary. I was happy I didn’t have to hurt the cub or the adult. Anywhere we were moving to the cub was following us and loudly calling the adult. Oh Oh. It took us a while to figure out a way out. The only way out was exactly where we last saw the large adult. I saw adults cougars in action, very dangerous, fast sneakers, and deadly strong, they make it look easy to jump very high over bushes to catch their next meal. The camera flash didn’t bother or scare the cub at all. Strange.

 

We wanted to touch the cute baby, we could have easily touch it and grab it to quench it with love ;) but I heard and read that touching a wild baby mammal could kill it. As most mammals have a keen sense of smell, and if humans touch them, there is a risk that their parents reject them, leaving them behind starving to death. Also, the large adult was close by and could have misinterpret a friendly touch as an attack on their cub. In turn attack us to defend their cub. So I stuck to photos. Birds in general have a very poor sense of smell though, except vultures.

 

It’s Always A Good Day on the Sunshine Coast!
