Mountain Goat profile in the early morning sun

Taking in a sunrise while standing at an altitude of over 14,000 feet, is an experience that is hard to describe. It is breathtaking, calming and therapeutic in many ways. I suppose in some ways it is like what astronauts experience from their perch far above the Earth.

Certainly, I don’t expect this high-altitude resident to quite feel the same way but I can’t help but think that maybe they do appreciate that view and in particular the warmth of the sun as it rises and spreads across the landscape. This nanny seemed to revel in it, stopping grazing and looking eastward, soaking in the sun’s rays and the view below for quite a while.

That early morning sun really lit up her fur and those eyes, goodness, they were radiant and showed extraordinary depth with that light.
