Jasper Wildlife

Mountain Goats

We were very fortunate in our mountain goat viewing in Jasper. Neither of us had ever seen mountain goats before. Mountain goats are generally rather hard to see as they prefer to stay at the top of the mountains, out of reach of any predators. However, in June, they migrate down to the naturally occuring mineral licks along the river in order to find nutrients.
