The many moods of Coyote Lake and Creek

Our weather so far this year has been very unpredictable. The photo above was taken on a warm, sunny day in early February on a hike near Coyote Lake, one of two reservoirs (the other is Anderson) feeding Coyote Creek.

The photo below is Coyote Creek later in the month, when heavy rains caused water to spill over Anderson Dam and turn the normal mild-mannered waterway to triple in size and even flood some residential areas.
