We followed a mountain goat up the hill until he stopped to eat and blocked our way. Scrambled up to the next switchback so we could continue only to have him follow us. Had to do a bit of running to get away. My first close encounter with one so very exciting. The photo was taken using a zoom lense, did not get that close.
Lovely flowers for the first couple of miles. Great weather, no bugs and very few people at the lakes for such a nice Saturday.
