King of the Needles
You're in his world now…

This showoff joined up with us as we neared the top of the south ridge. He was kind enough to let me take his picture. August 2005

Yes, they are supposed to be rather timid. Unfortunately the mountains goats in this area aren’t anymore. Down where people camp, the goats come roaming through looking for stuff to eat. They especially look for salt sources, namely any place where you urinate. They will stand around, waiting and watching for you to pee, then they will go and lick it up. That’s what these goats were doing. I counted 19 goats in and around our campsite one morning.

light in this photo, the goat looks almost translucent. I guess these goats are for the U.S. mountains what the the chamois is in the Alps (they are not goats but antelopes).

Yeah, that's what I thought. After I took the picture he walked (scrambled) off.
