Mountain Goats at Glacier National Park

Mountain Goats at Glacier National Park

I took this picture towards the end of my visit at Glacier National Park in Montana and I was running out of room on my flash card. A few pictures after this one and I was out. The mountain goat decided to walk towards me, then he walked right passed me and I actually touched him he was so close! I tried taking some pictures with my phone, but they weren’t quite the same and it happened so fast. I just enjoyed being so close to them and watched him eat a little bit longer.

    I didn’t realize you could get so close to them. I’ve only seen them from a distance. You must have a way with animals!

      I think you get a little luckier in National Parks, the animals are more used to people being around. Although, people should remember they are still wild animals. There was a group of people trying to follow some bighorn sheep through the parking lot to get better pictures. The sheep were getting followed by so many people, they didn’t get to the area they were trying to go. The people could’ve gotten injured if the sheep had other ideas. Pictures sometimes aren’t worth what you can put yourself or the wildlife through.

      My friend and I were just standing here, watching the mountain goats eat and they just walked right past us, it was amazing! And no chasing needed! 🙂
