A few mountain goat pictures from a backpacking trip last September. They're not shy!

Oops, meant to put these in wildlife, sorry. Mods could you move?

Great shot's they look like they've been on steriods, definitely packing some extra muscle compared to normal goats

Contrast, clarity, wonderful job. Beautiful animals.

Don't you need a permit to trek the Enchanted Lake trail?

Yes, it's a permit area (http://www.recreation.​gov ...actCode=NRSO&parkId​=72280external link).

They do a lottery each year in Feb/March. I tried again this year, but no luck. You don't need a permit for day trips, but it's a long haul.

beautiful shots. My daughter goes to WSU, so unfortunately we only get to the Puget Sound area once in a while. This makes me want to go now.
