Taken yards from the Golden Gate with clouds and drizzel. Closest shots I've ever had as my only other opportunities were at Barronette Peak in Lamar area and Sepulcher Mt in the extreme north.

Mountain Goats are an extremely interesting subject to photograph. And your photos are quality work. The wildlife biologists are alert to the fact that Mountain Goats carry diseases that kill Bighorns. For that reason, in Rocky Mt National Park, Mountains Goats are not welcomed.

Thank you much!

The big issue in RMNP disease outbreaks is currently being blamed on domestic sheep. Mountain Goats do indeed carry pathogens harmful to the sheep and there is a lot of contention in some areas besides the fight with sheep ranchers. The goats are not indigenous to the Yellowstone Eco System, so I suspect they will be "re-located."

Thank you much!

I have gotten to the point that I download all the pics I see on the forum and it usually makes a big difference in the detail.
