The Mountain: It be Mt. Moran (good job Luke!). That was a tricky one, since you would assume that it is a mountain in Yellowstone since I hardly leave this place.
The Coyote: My best guess is that it is the effects of mange (good job Swen!). It's the only critter we've seen with such problems. We haven't seen that coyote since. And yes, you too can make your car look like this coyote, by purchasing an CB radio kit from rightchannelradios.com, and slapping an antennae on the rear of your car!*
