Flying Coyote River

FlyingCoyote_063
Beautiful Flying Coyote.

Today’s adventure is coming to you due to inspiration by the great inspirational Inara Pey and the shameless thievery of of Orca Flotta. 😉 Yeah, Inara found Coyote River first but I was smitten by her article and photos and kinda decided on the spot I just had to go and see it with my own eyes. So here is what I found:

FlyingCoyote_057
As everywhere in SL it’s all about katzus …
FlyingCoyote_056
… and decoy. Cause it’s chic.
FlyingCoyote_054
… Ruins of a civilisation? Flying Coyote River gives indeed an impression of a post-apocalyptic village.
FlyingCoyote_053
Tea. Yeah, I believe you guys. 😉 Tea, mhm.
FlyingCoyote_052
The terraforming and landscaping of Flying Coyote reminds me of the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Or Canada.
FlyingCoyote_051
But then … ooh, what’s that? Doesn’t look like a dinosaurus but more like …
FlyingCoyote_050
… the remnants of hardcore Tolkien-esque dragons. Fantasy olé! WTF happened here???
FlyingCoyote_049
All this is in stark contrast to some of the really nice houses of Flying Coyote River. This one offers a view to die for.
FlyingCoyote_048
Whoa! Shut up and take my money!
FlyingCoyote_047
Inside the organic tea business. Yeah, I kinda knew they had something more than just tea on offer here.
FlyingCoyote_044
Then back to the postapocalypse: Someone turned this crashed plane into a rustic camp.
FlyingCoyote_045
In hindsight it wasn’t maybe nearly as romantic for the crash survivors back then.
FlyingCoyote_043
More signs of a past postapocalypse: This derailed Second Life Railway train.
FlyingCoyote_042
“ChooChoo! I’m a trai…” Know what, forget it.
FlyingCoyote_041
Looks like a comunity kitchen for the survivors of the Coyote River apocalypse.
FlyingCoyote_038
WOW! This is a serious treehouse.
FlyingCoyote_039
From the inside it looks like it could’ve been a ranger station or something.
FlyingCoyote_040
Whatever it once was, it is an impressive build!
FlyingCoyote_037
The gypsy wagon is super cool. Still, how the fuk did they get that thing onto the ledge???
FlyingCoyote_036
Emergency shelters everywhere. The apocalypse created obviously mainly hobos.
FlyingCoyote_034
But then again some super nice seaside cabins. Something is pretty much off the rails in this sim. :/
FlyingCoyote_033
Onsen? I’d rather not. Uaargs! 😮
FlyingCoyote_032
I can imagine myself living here. 🙂
FlyingCoyote_030
Isn’t this a super nice property?
FlyingCoyote_029
In this house … well, somebody had a food orgy and then  left without doing the dishes.
FlyingCoyote_027
Oh yes, let’s not forget the kittens.
FlyingCoyote_026
Nuisance? Naaaw. 😉
FlyingCoyote_025
Then a super nice house again.
FlyingCoyote_024
It was of course overrun by kittens. It’s a sure sign of  the postapocalypse.
FlyingCoyote_023
This piano … let’s say you wouldn’t wanna touch it with bare hands. But I couldn’t resist playing a Beethoven sonata.
FlyingCoyote_022
Nice views from the Flying Coyote lighthouse.
FlyingCoyote_021
In pretty much all directons.
FlyingCoyote_020
I love the overabundance of wind generators. After the apocalypse the inhabitants of Flying Coyote had obviously learned how to live in harmony with mother nature.
FlyingCoyote_019
This home needs the loving hand of a cleaning housewife. Hey, don’t look at me. I’m a slut.
FlyingCoyote_018
More decoy at the coastline. Still not entirely sure what happened here, but it couldn’t have been a very pleasant experience. 😦
FlyingCoyote_017
More cozy homeless shelters.
FlyingCoyote_014
At least the environment seems to be intact and healthy.
FlyingCoyote_012
Graveyard doesn’t seem to be overfilled neither.
FlyingCoyote_011
Maybe a weird variance shift, some Star Trek science or so, but what is this fuel pump doing on the woody hillside?
FlyingCoyote_010
Somebody seems to be quite industrious around here.
FlyingCoyote_009
At least the population of Flying Coyote was or is clever enough to worship female gods. 😉
FlyingCoyote_008
Another fine but small residence …
FlyingCoyote_007
… that’s much bigger inside than it appears from the outside.
FlyingCoyote_006
I love all those suspension bridges. They make it easy to get around the terrain.
FlyingCoyote_004
Although some of the houses are built on not-so-stable foundations …
FlyingCoyote_003
… as you can see from this view onto the same house. Seems almost as if it’s hovering above the Coyote River.
FlyingCoyote_002
Hah! Despite a clear and strong bias on cats, this woofpack holds its ground!
FlyingCoyote_001
A last look at the landing point.

Conclusion: I haven’t read Inara’s article about Flying Coyote River yet, have no idea about what was going on in this pretty sim. Clean research isn’t my forte, so if you wanna know more, like, real facts n shit, may I refer you to Inara’s article?

However, Flying Coyote River is one of the most interesting sims I’ve ever visited. Other sims you take a look at and say Aaaaw! and after five minutes you’re ready to leave again. No so with Flying Coyote. Here you find something to look at and wonder about around every corner. The whole terraforming and landscaping is layed out in a way that makes you wanna look around the next corner, behind the next hilltop, into one more house or cave or tower or or or.  I’ve spent roughly two hours this morning in Flying Coyote. I advice you to do the same, take your time and don’t try to take it all in within some minutes.

Happy exploring
