Atop the stretch of uphill in Griffith Park that cyclists generally refer to as the “roller coaster” (where Griffith Park Drive meets Mt. Hollywood Drive), my friend Stephen and I caught our breath around 8 p.m. and observed this first of two coyotes pass by us. Generally I’d delete a photo of this nonquality but I liked how it pretty much captured the elusive mystery of the wild canines against the flowing streetscape.
If I were king of L.A. I’d decree coyotes to be the city’s official animal.
FYI: Yeah, that’s right. After bike commuting to work across L.A. and back, just for fun I went for a bike ride.
