Mountain Goat

Mountain Goat profile

This mountain goat was more than willing to pose for me back in August.  Taken on a cold, blustery morning on top Colorado’s Mount Evans, the goats provided hours of photo opportunities.  They actually are an invasive species in the state having been brought here in the mid to late 20th century.

Mountain goat has a good laugh

I’m not sure what was so funny but this Mountain Goat at the top of Mount Evans, Colorado was having a good morning apparently. 😉   Image taken August 17, 2014.

This Kid is King of the Mountain

This kid is king of the mountain. At least it looks that way. Taken from the top of Mount Evans, Colorado, this Mountain Goat kid seemed pretty proud of itself for being taller than 14,000 feet. 😉

Mountain Goat wise guy

Taken yesterday, August 18, 2014, atop Colorado’s 14,265 foot Mount Evans right as the sun was coming up. The resident Mountain Goat herd provided some outstanding #photo opportunities, some of which were pretty amusing.

Clearly this one was showing what it thought about having its picture taken. 😉

Mountain Goat surveys its domain from on high

A mountain goat surveys its domain from atop Mount Evans, Colorado this morning.

It was facing into the morning sun while standing on the remains of the Crest House, an old restaurant at the 14,265 foot summit that burned down in 1979 and was never rebuilt.

What are you doing on my mountain?

This Mountain Goat was pretty interested in me this morning atop 14,265 foot high Mount Evans, Colorado.

We arrived right before dawn and were greeted by 40° temperatures and 40 mph winds. It was well worth it though. A gorgeous sunrise, the view from up high, the mountain goats and marmots were all prime features.
