The Goat Chronicles- Great Weekend Scouting

Unbelievably, our 16 year old daughter has found the great fortune of drawing a highly coveted (and VERY difficult to obtain) mountain goat tag in Colorado.  Might I mention that despite the fact that both Steve and I have been putting in for the same tag for over 15 years, our daughter drew her first year! 

We pulled out early on Sunday morning to get into the high country for some scouting.  The weather was stupendous and held all day…a rarity for Colorado.  We made it into the 13,000 foot peaks before noon and spent a great amount of time glassing the high country for goats.  The area is quite rugged but breathtaking nonetheless.  A 360′ look affords us views of some of the magnificent 14,000 foot peaks located in our back yard, as well as views of the beautiful Tayler Park and Cottonwood Creek basins.  Again, I sit back and realize that we do, in fact, live in God’s country.  After scrambling up the faces and scree fields, we found some promising areas that we will frequent over the next month.  Stay tuned!
