Living in the Rockies and other western mountain ranges of North America, mountain goats have evolved with the strength and balance needed to survive on the icy cliffs and steep precipices they call home. Few predators can scale the heights to pursue them and once they do, they find their would-be prey almost invisible, their white coats a perfect camouflage against the snow. "You'll notice that in the trees behind the mountain goats there's a ponderosa pine that's dying. The rusty brown needles indicate this. The cycles of life in each ecosystem are continually in motion, and I try to be as true to them as possible." ~Stephen
