High Altitude Fox

IMG_4759
There isn’t a lot of variety in wildlife on the Summit of Pikes Peak – mostly birds, marmots, and mountain goats, which is why it was surprising to see a fox make it to the summit. In order not to scare it away, I had to zoom in from a considerable distance away, hence the blurriness of the photo, but I still think it turned out okay.

Vertical Rainbow Part II

After the storm passed through and during the middle of when I was photographing the vertical rainbow, the mountain goats (?) made their nightly visit to the summit for food.

I had to almost hide around the south facing side of the summit house to take these photos as the animals scare pretty easily.

Mountain Goat Morning
