Went to Point Reyes recently. I’ve always wanted to hike it, and was made aware that their is a lot of wildlife. I stayed at the Point Reyes Hostel. Nice place and the people were quiet and respectful.
When I went to Point Reyes little did I know I would experience one of the best moments of my life. I was hiking north on the Limantour spit, and suddenly I spotted fresh Coyote tracks. I followed them and suddenly I spotted him. A lone Coyote foraging for food. I followed him for quite a while taking photos. It went on for well over 2 hours.
Facebook entry: “Tracking this Coyote across this spit at Point Reyes was one of the happiest moment’s of my life. It was just me, an open spit, at low tide, and that Coyote. He kept looking back to see if I was following him. This went on for well over 2 hours. While photographing that Coyote I forgot that no other people were within a 5 mile distance, the tide could rise and we could both be trapped, or he could suddenly attack me…I forgot that I have job woes, and housing issues and that I would have to go back to SF eventually. It was cheaper staying at the hostel at Point Reyes, and I didn’t have much money. When my adventure was over, I teared up. Because it was one of the happiest moments of my LIFE.
This isn’t much of a wide shot, but I walked where no other human had walked that day. The Limantour spit is one of California’s last frontiers. No other people, nor authorities or safety zones were within 5 miles.
