Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) Relaxing on Granite, Mt. Evans, Colorado

Quickie blog post from a Burger King parking lot. The trip has continued to be amazing, with great light and great adventure. My favorite part of the trip so far has been on the road to Mt. Evans, the highest paved road in North America at over 14,000 ft. At the top, a herd of very tame Mountain Goats can often be found and photographed as they hop from rock to rock looking for alpine grass and flowers to munch on. This male was found shortly after sunrise relaxing on a boulder at the edge of a large drop-off. Getting within feet of these big furry goats was such a thrill!
