Mountain Goat kid relaxes on the road

It is tough work living above timberline. The weather conditions are harsh, even in the summer, and climbing all those rocks can be tiring.

This relatively newborn lamb decided to take a break and soak in the morning sun near the top of Colorado’s 14,000+ foot high Mount Evans. This was my first trip of the season to the iconic mountain and it was fun as always.

The weather was pretty typical – 34 degrees and 40 mph winds – so it was a challenge but the rewards made it worthwhile.

Mountain Goats have a native range stretching from southern Alaska to the Rocky Mountains. The populations here in Colorado where I live are actually non-native, having been brought here in the middle of the 20th century as a tourist attraction.
