Coyotes and Deer, Oh My!

I wanted to go for a trail run but I stopped short when I saw this sign at the entrance.


It was hours away from dusk but it was overcast and eerily quiet.

I decided to go for my run anyway. I took my phone with me. I figured I could play some music to scare away the coyote if I saw him.

I ran at a fast past, over the very hilly course and I was almost out of breath when I heard something off in the bush ahead of me.

I typed my password in to unlock my phone . . .

And that’s when I saw . . .

Deer in the woods


There were three of them in fact.

They were off to the side of the trail. I had to zoom in to get a good shot. My hands were shaky because this was a tough route and I had been pushing myself.

It was hard to hold my little phone steady when the zoom was employed. I got several blurry shots and this fairly decent one.

I have seen deer on about 1/3 of my trail runs this year. Some of them were remarkably close too. I just never had my camera with me to document it.

I’m glad I got that above shot.

Warble Boardwalk

I continued my run, half expecting to come across some more wild life.

But other than squirrels and chipmunks, I didn’t see anything else.

Warbler Woods

This boardwalk is nice though.

I have a more in-depth review with lots of photos if you’d like to learn more about Warbler Woods! 

And you can always check out my Photographic Tour Archive for lots of great trails to run, walk, or stroll.
