Yeah, coyotes (and other canids) just look more handsome in cold country during winter. They are very well furred and well adapted to the cold. Coyotes in high country like Colorado (where this photo was taken) and Minnesota (where I live) look pretty good all year round, but they are especially handsome in winter.
