Mountain Goats

It's Saturday and time to join Viewing Nature with Eileen for Saturday Critters.  Eileen, thanks for hosting.

While on a boat ride on the Canyon Lake in Arizona, we got to see the Mountain Sheep.



This one was posing for us way up on the mountain.  It's amazing to see how they get around on all those rocks.  One of our friends said this is just a mock up, and when the boat goes by it flips up to look like we are seeing a real sheep.



But these were pretty unmistakable.  A ram and two ewes posing for us.

We have a wine festival in Fredericksburg tonight....so going out to have a bit of sampling.

Tell your friend to shut up about the mock ups. I don't want to lose my job as a mock mountain sheep flipper upper.

Very nice pics. Those animals are pretty amazing, aren't they?
Something is always going on in Fredericksburg. I think that would be a fun place to live.
