I came across this Mountain Goat billy near the top of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, Montana this past summer. He was working his way along, licking rocks to get the minerals from them. As he did, I happily snapped a number of pictures when he finally seemed to notice me and stared right at the camera. After ascertaining I was no threat, he happily went back to ignoring me.
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.
