I saw these guys last night at the hillside cross country trails. We were finishing a nice long ski and about two hundered yards before the parking lot we ran into one of these guys sitting in the middle of the trail. I wached it for a while at about 25 yards. Then my buddy clicked his poles together and the coyote came towards us. At about 10 yards he vered into the woods and sat down just off of the trail. I moved on and around the next bend there was another one. He moved off on his own after a minute or so. I was not suprised to see them but I was very suprised that they semed to have no fear of man. They were very vocal for the 15-20 minutes I was within ear shot.
