136-Rocky Mountain Goats – Alaska

Rocky Mountain Goats are one of the most agile of forest creatures. They regularly traverse the steep crags and cliffs of the mountain faces in search of food and to avoid bear and other predators. The goats will nest on high outcroppings protected from other predators. They are often seen before the foliage appears. This goat was several hundred feet up the cliff face and needed to be pointed out by the boat guide.
