And since I was determined to get a few shots from Glacier Point, I braved the rain and cold to take a few pictures of my kids... who I forced to brave the rain and cold as well...
Here's Half Dome
Then we rewarded the kids by letting them have a SNOW FIGHT!!!
Marlie's such a girly girl... even when getting hit by a snow ball! LOL
Then Haven was the dutiful big brother and stood still, allowing Marlie to get one good snow ball hit on him.
On the drive back I wanted to stop at a vista point where we had seen a snowy field. As we were pulling over, we noticed what we thought was a wild dog but quickly realized it was a coyote. The car that was leaving was throwing food scraps at it. Idiots.
He let me get surprisingly close to him. No I did not try and touch him! I will remind you he is a cousin of the dog and I do not touch dogs. Now if it was a bobcat, I'd be writing this from a hospital bed because I'd totally try to approach that little kitteh.
These are the shots I got of the snowy area. Not sure if I like them or not.
As we were leaving, the coyote was very disappointed we did not feed him. Hey, not-so-smart coyote, get out of the road! No, we're not going to feed you.
And as we drove away, we saw the coyote's true stripes. He is a straight up attention hog. Up on the snow bank, giving the begging eyes to every car that passed. SMH. That is such a sad comment on the stupidity of humans, that people would feed a wild animal like that.
Though if that was a bobcat, I totally would've thrown him a hot dog. This is my blog. I'm allowed to have double standards.
