Oreamnos americanus

One of the beautiful things about being up high in the mountains at dusk is the low angle the sun makes during its final minutes of the day. A halo of light glows though the thick winter coat of this Rocky Mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) as it grazes in the high altitude meadows leading down from snowbird pass. The blue gray in the upper left is the Robson glacier. Mt Robson Provincial Park, British Columbia, Canada.

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.
