Mount Evans Wilderness, Colorado
This young mountain goat, born in early June, is only three months old. He began exploring his rocky home when he was just a few hours old. In a few years when fully grown, he will tip the scales at 300 pounds, or perhaps a little more. His female counterparts will weigh approximately 20-percent less. Although a kid now, the day will come when his body will ripple with muscles as the wind ripples his beard while he stands on a rock, not unlike what he is doing in this limited edition photograph, as a stately King of the Mountain.
