Take I-70 to Idaho Springs, CO and exit at the western town exit for Mt Evans road. Follow the road to the entrance station at approx 14 miles. Pay the entrance fee and drive another 14 miles to the top of the peak. The mountain goats can be found near the top.
What started our as a warm July morning on top of Mt Evans (altitude 13,500 ft) quickly turned cold and sleet started to fall. As I was photographing this mother and baby, they decided to lay down in front of me to rest and stay warm.
