I met this mountain goat up on Logan pass in Glacier National Park. He was trotting along the trail towards me and showed no sign of slowing down as he approached. Deciding those horns look quite sharp, I stepped off the side of the track and out of his way. He trotted on past me with barely a glance in my direction. Later I found him grazing with his herd in a high mountain meadow and was able to study them for quite some time. It's one of those lifetime memories of a perfect day out in the mountains, watching wildlife and enjoying surprisingly close encounters.
