Artist's Description

Mt Evans is an alpine wonderland as the closest 14er to Denver, and it’s in my backyard.

The birth of new kids seemed to be delayed a bit this year, with the heavy winter we had in the mountains. I’ve only seen a few kids so far this year, and only rarely seen goats up on Evans so far.

I was out yesterday with Gary, who’s visiting back in Colorado and needed his high-elevation fix. And we found the mountain goat Mother Lode.

The first series of images was from running into a band of yearlings, who were all quite vocal and intent on licking water and minerals off the top of this boulder. There were about half a dozen of them running around. They didn’t mind us hanging around – in fact, I hope to have a new avatar photo to post soon with me and the goats right behind me.

We then found a huge nanny group with adults, yearlings, and at least 4 new kids.

As much as I enjoy marmots and pikas, it was fund to spend a good part of the morning with mountain goats.
