VIDEO: The Goat Incident!

Posted In: National Parks, Video, Wildlife

Most people who own RVs also enjoy getting outside to sample the natural pleasures of our bountiful planet. I’m not talking about the pleasures of ice cream, barbecue, and cold pale ale. I’m talking about activities like kayaking, surfing, biking, and hiking. These endeavors go hand-and-hand with camping.

Personally, I enjoy a nice hike – especially on sunny, low humidity days in the great American Rocky Mountains. There’s no better way to clear one’s head while stretching one’s legs. Of course, rocky mountain goats also enjoy hiking. In fact, although they are rarely seen surfing, goats hike on a daily basis. This brings us to today’s video, one of my favorite episodes of our long, long honeymoon. This video contains … the unexpected.

We shot this footage along a jaw-dropping hike through the upper stratosphere of Montana’s Glacier National Park. I’ve said before that if this incident had involved a bear, my memories of it may not be so fond. But it doesn’t involve a mama grizz; it stars a mountain goat. You can’t really plan this sort of thing. Life just happens, and here it unfolds on camera.

In case I’ve offended any mountain goats out there, it should be stated that the goat in question was an amiable, good natured fellow. He didn’t really “attack” anyone, although I’m quite sure he thought about having my camera for lunch. (Thankfully, most goats are still eating old-fashioned standard-definition cameras; HD is an acquired taste.)
