Enchantments Mountain Goat
There was no shortage of mountain goats on the trail. Once we got to the Lower Enchantments I counted at nearly a dozen. The goats like to hang out near humans in the Enchantments so they can drink our pee. I know it sounds gross, but they do it because the need the salt in our urine. There are signs at the trailhead asking people to pee on rocks and not plants because the goats will dig up the ground to drink your pee, destroying the plant life in the process.
