Mountain Goats of Alpine Junction

On my way to Jackson Hole Wy. I look carefully after I turn and head up the canyon. Often the mountain goats can be seen during the winter. I was surprised when I went around the first bend and saw a group of goats on the road. They are beautiful animals and it is amazing to observe them this close. Thanks for viewing and as always click on each image to see it in a window of its own.

Coming to the road.

These beautiful animals move gracefully even through the deep snow.

You might think each goat looks the same but upon careful examination the are all unique individuals.

The shape of the horns and face help determine the distinguishing characteristics.

Getting the goat to look right at you is the hardest thing to do. They seem to have a little ADHD.
