Mountain Goat

One of my favorite animals is the Mountain Goat so I was pleased to be able to spend some time watching a few feeding down low in Yellowstone National Park one late spring afternoon. Usually we need the spotting scope just to get a glimpse of these guys feeding high up on the steep cliff faces but this day we got lucky and were able to get fairly close. Beautiful animals for sure.

These guys just look like they are up to something. This group of American White Pelicans was hanging out on the banks of the snake river in Grand Teton National Park and photographed as we floated by in our kayaks.

Summer Sun

The power of the summer sun, melting the snow to fill the creeks, powering the trees to grow their leaves and the list goes on.
