    These are great pics of this extraordinary encounter. The goats will be talking about this the rest of their lives! If that parent goat, probably Mama Goat, gets any closer its going to kiss you!

    I love these photos. I have never been able to get that close to them while hiking in Colorado. What mountain are you on? I have seen similar views (and goats from afar) on Mount Princeton.

    Kudos to you. And thank you for sharing.

    Thanks for the comment Jennifer – these mountain goats crossed my path on Quandary Peak near Breckenridge, Colorado.
