I've always wanted to go check out Coyote Rocks, so thanks for the TR. Keep on adventuring...

I have to admit that Coyote Rocks was kind of a fun mini-alpine experience. The brush definitely seems to keep the riff-raff out :)

While we ate lunch after doing the first route, Mike decided to clip his toenails in preparation for the next one, as he sometimes does. There were a lot of ants running around.

After we figured out what we were actually climbing, and he cast off up the route, I noticed while belaying that some of the ants were carrying whitish crescent-shaped things. Yes indeed, the ants were carting off toenail clippings about three times their size.

Construction materials ? The natural world never fails to fascinate me ..

Can't recall him ever crapping on top of anything .. from what I can tell he says he's gonna go take a crap and wanders off into the woods like anybody else.

Or is this something you guys do together ? :)

It's not as bad as coastal chaparral, but there is definitely brush to contend with .. shorts and sandals NOT recommended !
