… what you will experience in nature”!
Today’s post comes from a photo trip to Mount Evans (Colorado) a few years ago. The photos in this post were not captured by me, but by my good friend, Adam, who lives in Colorado and often joins me for a few days of hiking and photographing when I go to Colorado.
While traversing the high roads of Mt. Evans, Adam and his daughter, who were with me this morning, observed a group of Mountain Goats that were grazing along the mountainside and slowly going up towards the summit. We found a spot to pull off the road and began hiking out into abundant wildflowers, while hoping the goats would continue towards us. We were not disappointed!
As the goats came closer, Adam walked a ways to the side to grab some photos of the goats as they approached his daughter and me. As shown in the photos below, the mountain goats of Mount Evans are quite used to people … one mom and a few kids came right to us and checked us out:
After giving us the “thumbs up”, the group continued grazing up the mountainside:
Adam, I’m sure you will see this post and wonder if this awesome memory still resonates with you, too!
