As I hiked up in the Alpine wilderness area of the Enchantments of central Washington, my son and I came across a number of mountain goats during our back country photo shoot.
This particular female mountain goat was curious as to who we were, and she approached us little by little. We tried to keep our distance knowing that mountain goats have been know to kill people. My son decided to tag this female mountain goat with the name, Frieda.
Frieda seemed friendly, but with wild animals you always need to be cautious at all times.
