Mountain Goat - Finally

Hi all,
I have been trying to get a decent photo of the goats in my area for a long time. Tonight, I took two of my daughters for a ride in Provo Canyon, and to my amazement, I stumbled onto a group of goats feeding in some very steep terrain (I used my Leica rangefinder to check the distance...about 1150 yards). I used my Celestron C5 with a 25mm TeleVue Panoptic, and got this. Its not perfect, but, considering the distance, its not too bad. These goats really look scruffy this time of year. Enjoy!

Tyler- have you ever climbed Timp? It's easiest to go up from the American Fork side and then down the glacier to Sundance. Lots of goats up there! My brother has a ranch about 10 miles east of Heber and he's got wild goats that hang around in the sandstone cliffs there, too.

Beautiful country!
