Who doesn’t like flowers? Almost everyone does including, it appears, this smiling Mountain Goat billy. 😉
I snapped this image early one morning near the top of the 14,265 foot high Mount Evans back in July. This fella was alone enjoying a quite but very chilly morning at high altitude. The blooming flowers of the alpine tundra were beautiful.
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.
