Wing Lake is a gorgeous alpine lake right on the crest of the North Cascades, near Rainy Pass on HWY 20 in Washington.
There we were visited by Lone Goat, a beautiful male mountain goat in his prime. Upon meeting him, we quickly realized that he was very curious about us, and very mellow. He didn’t fear us, nor we him, although we did take note of his size, and in particular the very sharp horns on his head. We just looked at him and moved slowly, and he did the same. There was mutual respect and keen awareness by all parties present.
We hung out with Lone Goat for a good hour and a half. It was one of the most extraordinary moments I have ever had.
