Our desert has a lot of coyotes. Our local mountains do, too, but the desert ones are thinner and leaner and lighter than the ones that live in the mountains. I often see them in the mornings as I drive to work on the Interstate and they frequently do NOT make it across the busy lanes of traffic. They wander the fields in the desert, looking for their meals. The bound across the road in the mountains, oblivious to traffic. This young female ran across the road I was taking out to look at some barns in Sky Valley, an insolated community here in our desert. She wasn't moving fast and I pulled over, grabbed my camera, and took some photos before she realized that she should get moving into the brush. That's My World for Tuesday, April 14, 2009.
