To add more distance (0.9 mi) to a short hike on a cool but beautiful afternoon, I turned off the #100 at the big SW dam and moseyed over to the little S dam. Out on the low trail, back on the high one. Glad I did. I saw movement about 100 yards away in the middle of the circular #60 trail. Brownish-gray, left hind quarter of what had to be a coyote. It was the first one I'd seen on the south side of North Mtn. Also on the detour I came across a jackrabbit and the largest covey of quail I've seen in years, 19 in all. It never fails to startle me when some rise suddenly from the bush with a thundering flutter. The #60 Nature Trail was surely that today.
