Mountain Goat Kids Jumping by Tin Man Lee

I had been sitting against a big rock at the summit of the 14,000 foot Mount Evans in a chilly and windy morning since dawn. As the morning light started to shine over the rock, three playful mountain goat kids that were just a few days old climbed up onto one rock and they started jumping. I angled the shot so that the snow-capped Rocky Mountain Range was in the background. – Tin Man Lee
