Even with Steve Riggs’ secondary camera, his photos are spectacular. Yesterday, on the Birdwood Circuit, he captured the rare sighting of mountain goats. Steve posted 27 photos with his trip report, and every photo is amazing.
I’m always fascinated by mountain goats’ ability to survive at high elevations with the scarcity of food. On the other hand, they avoid predators by living high above the valleys where the wolves and cougars roam. They also avoid being photographed very often.
I’ve added Steve’s photo, and a few more from the past winter, to the Animals along the ski trail photo gallery below. Thanks to Chuck for providing so many of these wonderful photos.
