Mountain Goat

If you’re visiting Glacier National Park, you have a great chance to see mountain goats, as they call the high alpine terrain home. However, they’re not easy to spot as they blend into the mountain side and tend to sit motionless for long periods of time.

If you want an opportunity to view them up close, take the short, but rewarding hike to hidden lake. During our time at the viewpoint that looks over the lake, we were visited by several mountain goats, one in which walked within feet of our resting spot before it took its own path down the face of the rocks.
