I can’t help but be impressed by the courageous lifestyle of mountain goats. It’s almost shocking how they seem to balance so easily on the side of very steep cliffs.
The mountain goat inhabits the Rocky Mountains and Cascade Range regions of North America. Mountain goats are the largest of mammals found in their high-altitude habitats, which can exceed elevations of 13,000 feet [source]. The goats usually stay above the tree line throughout the year, but they do migrate seasonally to higher or lower elevations within the range.
