Coyote Pups in Otter Creek Valley

High Lodges at Otter Creek Road

Seeing a coyote at anytime is a rare occurrence. I’ve lived here for six years, and I’ve seen four coyotes out of the corner of my eye as they crossed a road. Seeing baby coyotes must be even more rare, but a few days ago that all changed. I was cruising slowly along my road higher up the mountain, when I saw these little guys at a curve up ahead. I sat silently for awhile, and they came closer, romping and playing along the road. This is a private road with a cul de sac and only one house, so traffic is not a problem here. This is what I saw.

After seeing the puppies, I captured this sunset view of Roan Horsetop Mountain along the western rim of the valley.

I made this very short video of the coyote pups. I had never seen a coyote pup before this.
