Coyote Near Furnace Creek - Death Valley National Park (Part 19)

At the end of November last year (2012), I took a trip to Death Valley National Park. This is the second trip there in my life. The 1st time I went, I was still a little kid, and I didn't start taking photos yet. This time, I have a pro camera and I am ready to shoot the scenery. Death Valley National Park is known for its "out of this world" scenery, UFO sightings, and many other things. The desert is a very mysterious and beautiful place. In this chain of blog posts, I will be showing you mainly photos of Death Valley National Park, but also photos from surrounding areas like The Mojave Desert, Alabama Hills, and Rhyolite Ghost Town. I have picked out over 400 photos from my trip to show you guys and I will be dividing them into many blog posts. Unlike blog  post chains before, I obviously can't put a link of ever blog post on every single blog post, so instead, I will do the same thing I did for my Yellowstone National Park photos before, by sticking a link of the Next and Previous post on each blog post instead.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Today, I have photos of a coyote in the park. Here is the story. I was driving from Furnace Creek Visitor Center to Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail when I saw this coyote (all by itself) walking around on and off the road just in that area. A lot of cars stopped and waited for it to get off the road. I also stopped and came out and took some photos of it. It was the only "big" animal I saw and got a photo of in the park. What is weird is I passed by the same place the next day and the coyote was still there. Not sure why... It was walking around very near the Furnace Creek Visitor Center. Is it looking for food there? Not sure. Anyways here are some of the photos I took of it.

 Walking towards me toward my car. 

It walked by so close part of it got cut off! The photos still turned out okay so I'm showing it here. I took out several which were badly focused and lit.  

 Walking by now.

I think this was one of the best shots of it I got. :) Thanks for looking at my camera coyote!  

These are all the photos for today! I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I will have photos from Golden Canyon Interpretive Trail (kind of obvious if you looked at message above). Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
