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 ..
