Beartooth Highway, Wyoming
The scenic Beartooth Highway was one of the locations I visited during the September 2015 Natural Habitat Adventures tour of the Tetons/Yellowstone. Our group ventured out one late afternoon with Dan Hartman, a professional wildlife photographer from Silver Gate, Montana, to look for photo opportunities.
Right in the Beartooth Pass area (elevation 10,947 feet), we spotted some mountain goats in the distance, right below a part of the road we had traveled. We backtracked, parked the van, and walked about a hundred yards to their location. We made our presence known to them and walked slowly, so we were able to get within a reasonable distance. This little one hopped around on the rocks with the agility of a seasoned adult!
