Slideshow: Mountain lion near Edwards

Special to the Daily

A mountain lion walks along a hillside near Squaw Creek Road in Edwards on Wednesday. Local photographer Rick Spitzer spotted the cat from the road and photographed it from about 150 feet away. Mountain lions — generally elusive — have been spotted across the county this winter and have killed three dogs in Vail and Red Cliff.
