Mountain Goat on Quandary Peak

While I was descending Quandary Peak after my first winter 14er ascent, this guy casually walked by, seemingly oblivious to the snow and wind and quite comfortable. November, 2006.

Ditto that

This is a fantastic shot. I topped out on Inwood Arete close to sunset and was greeted by a bunch of goats and their kids. Looks like this one has his fluffy winter coat.

Re: Ditto that

Thanks! This was easily the biggest goat that I have yet to see.

This isn't a photo...

It's a work of art. Amazing shot- my new background.

Re: This isn't a photo...

THANKS! That has to be one of the coolest things someone has said to me on this site. I have to admit all I did was point and shoot in the black and white mode and I got lucky. Thanks again.
