Mountain Goat


Mountain Goat at North Cascades National Park
This mountain goat came early one morning to visit at Sahale Glacier Camp in North Cascades National Park. Mountain Goat at North Cascades National Park
The tent sites are atop three big piles of rubble, from the glacier above.

The goat was hanging out looking for places where someone had peed so that he could get some salt!

The goat had a minimum safe distance of about 10 feet. He was happy to be that close, but if I took one step closer he would back off that same distance.

The large white mountain way in the distance here is Mount Rainier.
