Goats on Lenawee Face

A couple of days ago I was on the Summit and encountered about a dozen mountain goats hanging around the snow fence at the top of Lenawee Face. Sorry the clarity on this photo is a little weak. The goats are interesting creatures. If you get too close, they scatter. If you stay a few hundred feet away, they don't seem to be bothered by our presence. On this particular day, I was driving on the service road and the Lift Maintenance crew was working at the top of Zuma. They seemed to care little about our presence. Lesson here - give the goats plenty of room and leave them in peace.
