A South Lake Tahoe Surprise

As we drove south around the west side of the Lake Tahoe from Northstar, we stopped in at Tahoe City for a yummy BBQ lunch.  Then, we made a quick stop at Emerald Bay for a photo op, as it's right beside the main highway, and is one of the iconic viewpoints in Tahoe.

The surprise came when we turned on to Fallen Leaf Road.  We were really just looking for birds or interesting views.  But, we quickly found two coyotes, instead.

Neither coyote was particularly afraid, and this one approached quite closely to our car.  I have to assume they're used to humans from their foraging tactics.  Which is not good, but, I absolutely took advantage of the photographic opportunity!
