For those backpackers out there who felt the same levels of sympathy with the coyote that I did - and perhaps still do - a trip to Cornwall in New York at the beginning of October might be a nice idea as the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum is offering intrepid travellers the chance to track coyotes for themselves.
Led by Carl Heitmuller, an environmental educator, those who sign up for the expedition on October 4th will not only go on a one-mile hike looking for the animals, but also see what their footprints look like and how they compare to other animals like dogs and foxes. You'll also get to make a plaster coyote track for yourself that you can take away with you as a nice memento. And if you see that pesky Road Runner, be sure to give him a piece of your mind.
If you're in the area for a little bit longer than a few days, consider taking part in the Laurel Crest Park run (or walk, if you don't think your legs can take it) on October 18th. If you register before the race, you'll even get a free t-shirt.
