Cautious coyote

August 21, 7:21 PM, Set 320

"Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and numbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy."

Hamlin Garland

Couldn't agree more.

Me too!
Saw a terrified young coyote on Green Valley Rd. Below Dyke 8 at rush hour a couple of weeks ago. don't know what happened to it, didn't think it a good idea to try to rescue it. Hope he made it to where he was going.....
