In La Honda there are better things to report about, like the Cafe Cuest where the food is cheap and outstanding: made from scratch.

I'll second Mark's post that Cafe Cuesta has great food!

However, I live about a 1/4 mile from the mountain lion siting and I did appreciate hearing about it - it came out on the SMCAlert system. It makes a certain amount of sense to be aware when a predator that could eat my dog (or me, if my luck was truly bad) is in the immediate vicinity of my home.

My girlfriend saw a HUGE mountain lion sitting on the side of the road on 35 by Alice's last Wednesday and called 911 but it never made the SMCAlert system. They're out there, so be aware, and if you have a dog its probably a good thing, even if its just a little yapper.
