    While hiking with my Trail hound, we ran into this group of kids that were very curious on whom we were...

    All the Mountain Goats in the WA State Olympics are being relocated and those not captured, will be Killed as they are not indigenous to the area, introduced by man, and now man is removing them after decades as its felt they are damaging things, so glad to get a chance to seem them over the past years.

  2. Cute, but hard on the Olympic environment -- and deadly too, I recall a couple of hikers getting gored by goats (and one death?). Nice picture.
     
  3. I love this!! I bet you will miss seeing them when they are gone.
     
  4. Isn't that the truth!
     
  5. great shots. Glad you had the opportunity to see them before they go.

    the injury was many many year ago and probably someone doing something inappropriate.. I hike up there Year after YEar and have had the goats come very close, but never a threat, but then there is a protocol you use with Mt. Goats... they do not bother you unless at birthing and you pressure the mom, then you could have issues, as one would expect.

    thanks Louis...that may have been with your, new to me, lens.
     
  8. Very nice shot ,I love the expressions.
     
  9. That is a lot of kids. I ran into a large group of them a few years back while on an overnight hike with my sun. We woke up to a group of them around our tent at sunrise. There was a big write up in the Seattle paper this week on how they are being removed and transported in refrigerated trucks and put on the ferry.
     
  10. Nice shot. When we lived down there in the 90s a photographer fell to his death when a goat butted/pushed him off a cliff.

    Sometimes I wonder what goes through the scientific brain. Granted the goats aren't endemic to the Olympics. But one has to wonder what is so unique about those particular mountains that the goats are damaging there but not in other places. Personally I think they should get rid of the glaciers. Ever seen what they do to the mountains?
