My Pictures of Mountain Goats Along The Mt. Evans Scenic Byway - July 25, 2010
Photo Gallery - Mountain Goats
My friend and I were driving on the
Mt. Evans Scenic Byway, located in the mountains west of Denver, when we spotted approximately
15-20 mountain goats eating grass and living in their natural high elevation habitat.
It was so interesting to see their woolly coats shedding.
Some of the mountain goats stood next to the road. We gently drove past this guy ... the closest I've ever been to one.
This is probably my best mountain goat image. He looks sharp!
I have spotted mountain goats a few other times,
most recently near the summit of
Horseshoe Mountain in the Mosquito Range.
This one posed for about 30 seconds above before scooting away. :)
