How Coyote Manifests Himself in Ordinary Reality (Arizona III)

(see previous posts here and here)

One of the biggest jokes between me and Coyote is that I have never seen a regular coyote in the flesh.

Coyotes are found everywhere in the Americas, and although I have lived in quite a few places, I've only ever heard them in southern Ohio (during my first shamanic journey workshop). I spoke with Coyote quite extensively before my trip to Arizona, and really hoped that I would see one in the wild.

Now, although He gave me quite the welcome the first night, I never heard or saw a coyote the entire rest of the trip. However, I did have a funny and synchronous interaction during a hike in Red Rock State Park:

I was hiking back to my rental car after a short, 3 hour loop. It was early, I hadn't seen anyone else on the trail for miles, and I was starving for a hearty lunch. About 1/4 mile from the end of the trail, I passed a group of hikers (perhaps in their 50s?), and we exchanged hellos. One gentleman kept talking with me, in a very loud and fast voice, "Ah! What a beautiful girl! You deserve a sweetheart!" He gave me this:

Coyote Love! (c) 2015 Lonely Coyote
I thought the older gentleman was simply a harmless flirt, so I giggled and put the stone in my pocket. When I went to thank them, the group  had already walked away down the trail.

Of course, it wasn't until later, when I realized that I didn't remember seeing the gentleman hiking with the others (after I turned around), that I realized it was Old Man Coyote!

Have you ever had Spirits visit you in regular life? How did you know who it was?
