    Default Coyotes in RC Park

    I was riding through Rock Creek Park yesterday morning on my regular Arlington-RC Park Sunday ride when two coyotes shot across Beach Dr just north of where Beach crosses East West Hiway. That was a wildlife first for me.

    My mother has seen them at Broad Branch and Linnean Ave. There's a small but stable population in the Park.

    Funny, I saw two a couple of days ago while riding dirt on the Northwest Branch Trail above Route 29 (the Kemp Mill area). I'm lucky that they didn't have any dynamite!

    I'm now in the mood to watch some Road Runner cartoons!

    I saw one in Arlington about five years ago near the Air Force Memorial. Confused the heck out of me at first because my brain was trying to make it be a dog.

    Saw one along the towpath near Little Falls Branch a few years back. That's the only one so far in the immediate metro area. Three foxes on the morning ride though, a new record.

    I have definitely heard them howling in Arlington National Cemetery at night. Really spooky with a full moon.

    My NoVA coyote encounter was early morning on the W&OD between Falls Church and Vienna as I was riding out for the Reston Century about 10 years ago.

    There are consistent reports from neighbors of coyotes along the Custis... (Some of us think it's just foxes and imaginations)
