Mountain Goats

I was just looking back through photos this evening and contemplating some places I want to revisit this summer, especially close to home.  I definitely need to get back up to Mt. Evans this summer.  It’s only about an 1 and 1/2 hours from home so it’s nice and convenient.  My last trip up to Mt. Evans was shrouded with fog so I wasn’t able to capture much of the scenery.  One of the many things you will see heading up to Mt. Evans is mountain goats. This particular evening the goats were right along the road. This particular one gave me a nice pose before he and the herd got skittish and headed up the mountain side.

Have you started to plan your trips for the upcoming year? Spring is right around the corner and before you know it the snow will be melting and flowers will start blooming. I’ve already started to plan a trip to Moab and back to the Grand Tetons and of course my photo tours around the state this summer. If you are thinking of coming out to Colorado I’ve still have some openings in both of my photo tours this summer.

  • Cools shot Rick. I’ve only been to Mount Evans once before and there was a thunderstorm below where I was standing. Quite the memory.

  • Great capture Rick! Awesome shot!

  • Great, great shot, Rick! Love the character in the one up front there, and those two standing behind on that rock are great added elements to the composition!
