Goat in Glacier National Park


My friends and I came upon this fine specimen of the mountain goat variety (if there is such a thing) while taking a hike in Glacier National Park in early July of 1992. Our presence didn't seem to faze him one bit as he just sat there while our whole group stopped, talked, took pictures and generally acted like your average silly tourists. Besides the poor weather (it was windy, raining and about 45-50 degrees - in July!), the hike was really cool because we not only found this beast but also ran into several bighorn sheep further up the trail. Now, I'd just like to go back to Glacier on a day that's a bit more appealing...
