Normally I might just let this beautiful photo slide by without comment.
In this case, I find this particularly frustrating. See that creature? That’s the same goat that blocked my trail in Glacier National Park. I’m sure of it. I’d recognize those beady eyes and horns anywhere! (See the first story linked to in the “more’ section; maybe this goat stopped in Washington on the way to Alaska.)
He’s probably in Alaska now under the Federal Goat Protection Program.
He probably thinks he’s safe there at Kenai Fjords National Park. Ha! He’s farther away, but that just means I have farther to travel to find him!
I’m taking a longer telephoto, a wide angle, and a first aid kit, next time. I’ll be prepared!
