Griffith the Traveling Mountain Lion at “his” Observatory in Los Angeles

Griffith the Traveling Mountain Lion is my frequent travel companion. Named for a park in Los Angeles where a mountain lion is known to roam, he is prone to claiming everything in the park — including the famed observatory — as his own. In part as a result of this, he has developed a significant interest in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology.

He left the mountains and forests a long time ago when he discovered pizza and determined that it was far preferable to the food and lifestyle he had known previously. Today he prefers first-class travel and fine dining. He can often be observed guarding my beer when I’m traveling.

He was previously regularly featured on Instagram using the hashtag #GriffithsTravels. Unfortunately, my main account was disabled and much content was lost. This will come back slowly.
