Wasatch Mountains - Salt Lake City, Utah
Little Cottonwood Canyon
We walked right up on this guy, he didn't seem to mind.
He probably thinks I'm some sort of predator,
But he knows he has the advantage on these steep cliffs.
When mountain goats feel like you've worn out your welcome,
they start snorting and licking their lips.
The next step would be standing up and digging with his hooves,
and bowing his head, this means that you could be gored.
Can you see his tounge that he is sticking out at me?
This means it's time to go.
