This book project includes 158 pages and 208 of my best photographs of Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep created on Mt. Evans in Colorado, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies.
This is a body of work spanning many years of creating the images for this book. In most cases, they were made under extreme conditions including 40-50 mph winds, bitter cold weather, very rough terrain and altitudes in excess of 14,130 feet.
The book is divided into six sections Mountain Goat Adults, Parenting and Young, followed by Bighorn Sheep Adults, Parenting and Young. There is a wide variety of behavior captured, as well as, great interaction between the parents and their young giving you a view of their lives from only a few days old through adulthood.
The locations provided spectacular scenery for the settings and the text included will give you an overview and better understanding of these majestic animals.
