Trips to weddings have kept me out of Seattle and I was missing my walks so I planned a longish one today in the Seaview and Fairmount Park neighborhoods of West Seattle. I walked streets between Fauntleroy Way and 50th Avenue SW from SW Juneau Street to just north of the Pelly Place Natural Area.
My 9.1 mile walk through this mostly residential area rewarded me with a coyote sighting. I'm not sure of the date of this sighting map but it indicates that others have seen coyotes near where I was walking. There is a grassy lot for sale on the dead-end section of 47th Avenue SW just north of SW Holly Street and that is where I spotted the coyote. I wasn't quick enough with my camera to get a picture but I'm pretty sure that's what I saw. It appeared to run into the ravine north of the lot.
