Last week I spent several days in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness for the first time. As an amatuer wildlife photographer, I have dreamed about my first mountain goat sighting in the wilderness. After reading several recent trip reports from many of the hiking trails in the area, I was certain this would be my time. Unfortunately, after hiking over 25 miles in 3 days I still did not see any mountain goats in the wild. This friendly goat, however, posed for me near the Enzian Falls Putting Green while visiting Leavenworth during the same trip.
