Silverton man encounters lynx on Molas Pass

Dontje Hindlebrand, a resident of both Ouray and Durango, took this photo about 7 a.m. Dec. 15 on Molas Pass, south of Silverton. Hindlebrand said the lynx mother and juvenile were within 5 feet of his car on U.S. Highway 550, then disappeared into the snowy mountains.
This lynx was photographed in December at Purgatory Resort.
