We had hiked to an overlook in the hopes of finding Bighorn sheep, when I spotted this fox not too far from us. To our amazement, it trotted in our direction, getting pretty close to us before it headed away. We suspect that it was not completely healthy, as indicated by the condition of its fur, and also the fact that it had to stop 3 times to 'take care of its business' as it moved away from us.
