That's me, at the top of the giant Coyote sculpture by Bryan Tedrick (bryantedrick.­com).­

I am in the mouth of the coyote, and you can see its ears behind my face.­ It was a fun and easy climb.­

I heard that several people got injured on the Coyote (broken arms /­ wrists and what not).­ No-one died.­ Initially the coyote head could spin.­ I think many people got hit by the giant metal ears, This was the dangerous part especially if you didn't realize the head could spin.­ After taking several people to the hospital, they put a sign "Don't climb - Seriously", and locked the head.­ People kept climbing it anyway, since the sculpture was designed to be climbed.­ Later, the sign was changed to a more adequate "Climb at your own risks".­
