Goats and Glaciers

Last light catches the new winter coats of some rocky mountain goats (Oreamnos americanus) as they cross the track descending down from snowbird pass. Winter is fast approaching the high alpine region and the mighty Robson glacier can be seen below in the distance. The mountain goats are not a member of the genus Capra that includes all other goats, rather they are a member of the antelope family, and should be more correctly referred to as a goat-antelope. Mt Robnson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada.
