This summer we stayed couple nights at the Lost Trail Hot Springs resort in Sula Montana. On one of the evenings we went down to the meadow, trying to escape the heat in the cabin (it was about 90F in Montana during that time), and check out little pond and small creek. The sun was rapidly setting behind the mountains, making some really nice light effects on the meadows grass and flowers.
Later on before it got dark we saw some local deer grazing in this field and drinking water from the pond. It was a good day!
We were really excited to see a wild goat crossing the road and pulled off to see if he would hang around. He didn’t, he went on down the slope to the river and disappeared in the thick brush. But when I looked to the other side up the mountain I saw something even better. A lot of goats and most of them are a few months old, hanging out there on the rocky cliff and checking me out. If I didn’t stop and didn’t pay close attention I would probably never notice them up there, they blend in so well. I hope they have long and productive lives in Montana mountains.
