Mountain Goats

20120427-164220.jpg

Today our local wildlife division hosted a wildlife-viewing event to see mountain goats in Little Cottonwood Canyon. I guess April is the best month to see these guys in this spot. After much searching, we finally spotted two on the skyline of a cliff (probably not pictured in photo above). They had a table full of skins, antlers, skulls, and feet etc, of elk, mountain goats and other ungulates that the girls enjoyed exploring. The girls also got to stamp tracks and took home a coloring page, photo sheet and information about mountain goats. We learned that mountain goats have two toes like other ungulates and that their favorite food is willow.

  • LipperLoppy? what???

    “LipperLoppy” is a word that my daughters invented. It is usually used as a silly adjective or noun. It's a frequent family joke and a good representation of our family's crazy joyful life.
