Mountain Goats
April 15, 2008

Lynn Wittlieff spotted these mountain goats in the Snake River Canyon, north of Pinedale, last weekend. Mountain goats live on steep mountain terrain traversing precarious cliff-side ledges with confidence and ease. They grow up to four feet in height and weigh between 100-300 pounds. Young are born in May and are up and walking following the mother within hours.
