Location: Yellowstone National Park, United States of America
Admire the backdrop of the undisturbed snow- capped mountain as a Coyote breaks trail on the prowl in the heart of Yellowstone National Park. Wintertime in Yellowstone features some of the harshest weather known to man. Temperatures falling below -40F and whiteouts dumping down feet of snow are all common winter attributes. Coyotes are one of the most adaptable predators on the planet and are fitted with a knockout warm winter coat to help them face the brutal winter temperatures.
Unvisited my most, the backcountry during winter in Yellowstone National Park offers solitude. The only sounds heard are the strong gusts of wind whipping around the mountains. After waking up in my tent on brutally cold morning I ratcheted on my snowshoes, attached my sixty- five pound pack to my back, and broke trail looking for Coyotes. After snowshoeing for hours no animal was visibly out during the cold morning.
After walking onto the surface of a smaller mountain, and gazing at a taller one in the background, I turned to my right and observed a Coyote hunting. The Coyote was hunting by covering ground in an 's' shaped pattern, so I was able to position myself off the top mountain directly in front of where I estimated the Coyote to go. As time passed, the Coyote followed the behavior predicted and stood at he edge of the peak gazing into the valley of snow bellow. This moment shows why Mother Nature is truly the greatest artist of us all.
