The mountain goats are magnificent and not shy around people. Happily, it's not because they are begging or people feed them, but they are just so used to humans, that they don't care and go about their business.
Mommies and babies.
I can't stop.
Finally we tore ourselves away and climbed the final hundred or so feet to the summit from the parking lot.
Whew! We made it. Okay, the view is pretty fantastic.
On the way back down, we saw a bonus - Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. More cute babies.
One of the little guys got hungry.
Now a little about the road - it was scary. First there was the frost-heaved section - a free roller coaster ride.
But mostly, (did I mention?) it was scary.
Luckily they marked where the road is crumbling away.
However if you can tear yourself away from watching the road long enough, there was a pretty nice view.
Oh, and one more bit of wildlife - this marmot was wondering what all the fuss was about.
