Re: That is crazy...

Hey Dan,
It was amazing! At one point, if I wanted to, I could have touched one of them! I have a great picture of my dad standing on the summit right next to one...I might have to post that one too :)
Anyway I hope you get to see one soon, it's AWESOME! They are all over Grays and Torreys.

WOW!

What an awesome shot, bro! Incredible. It's a dream of mine to get a pic this good. Maybe when I do the Crestones this summer! Hey, I live on the west side of Colorado Springs...let me know if you ever wanna hike somewhere!

Re: WOW!

Sounds good. Grays and Torreys is one of the best place in Colorado to see mountain goats...they are brave little guys. Thanks for the comment!

One great climber....

A true mountaineer, it looks like this baby billy goat is defending his mountain. What a beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing.
