Cute Little Kids




Today’s post features some of the many, cute Mountain Goat kids that were in a group of goats near the summit of Mount Evans (in the Colorado Rockies). The Mountain Goats, and particularly the young kids, are always a highlight of every trip I make to Mount Evans. Born in early June, by late summer […]

Close Encounters!




Over the weekend, I had a chat with one of my local Master Gardener friends about close encounters with wild animals. I mentioned my close encounters with some Mountain Goats a couple of years ago. He was interested in seeing some of the images captured, so I’m re-posting that post today. Below is my original […]

One of my favorite subjects to photograph here is the Mountain Goat. And summertime is double the fun because all the young kids that were born in […]

Often when visiting the summit of Mount Evans, there will be a group of mountain goats wandering around, playing or getting their salt intake from the rocks and gravel. During this day’s drive to the summit, there was a […]

Romper Room!




On my second trip up the Mount Evans Highway, I came across a wonderful sight … a group of a couple of dozen of Mountain Goats (Oreamnos americanus), and within that large group, there were at least 7 month-old “kids”. And mountain goat kids are just like human kids; they are often busy playing! At […]

Those Glorious Goats!




The last leg of my recent 4-week photo trip was to camp at Mount Evans (Colorado) and photograph the beautiful scenery, wildflowers and wonderful wildlife there. And one of my main interests was the mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus). I have been long intrigued with these mammals, especially how nimble-footed they are on the rocks and […]

“Cat and Mouse Games … With Goats”




During a stop at Summit Lake on one of my early morning travels up to the top of Mount Evans (Colorado), I noticed a rather large herd of mountain goats along the slopes of the mountains that surround Summit Lake. The group consisted of ewes, their newborn “kids”, and some yearling goats (note: although it […]
