Fun Friday: You Take the High Road, I’ll Take the Low Road

Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from the parking lot of Summit Lake, about 5 miles from the summit of Mount Evans, in Colorado. While driving to the summit, I always stop by Summit Lake to check out the wildlife. Most of the time, I will see either Bighorn Sheep ewes and newborn lambs, or Mountain Goat nannies and kids. And on a really good day, both will be there!

On this trip, there were about 12-15 goats around the parking lot. As I photographed them, this pair of young kids were busy playing on one of the boulders:

At only ~ a month old, the mountain goat kids are always playing and stumbling over each other. Makes it a bit difficult to get good, sharp images when they’re keeping you in stitches! :o)
