Last week I hiked McGullough Falls near Breckenridge, Colorado. It is an amazing hike filled with waterfalls and wildflowers. At sunset, I went on Blue Lakes Road and had a delightful surprise. I was parked above the lower lake and suddenly a herd of seven mountain goats - four adults and three babies - came down the mountain right where my car was parked! A nanny and her baby even came right up to my car! I decided it was best to stay put as they circled my car and then rejoined their herd. It was such an incredible experience to be so close to them! Truly unforgettable.
Evening is a prime viewing time for wildlife. But remember to not feed or approach them. Happy viewing!
