Glacier Bay Explorer

A mountain goat in the early spring is one of Glacier Bay's most majestic animals. It still has most of its thick winter fur, and it has managed to make it through another winter. This one stood about 100 ft above me on top of a cliff, as I craned my camera up from my kayak. I found that, much like the face of a glacier, it is unwise to approach too closely, as a cascade of rocks tumbled off the cliff in the wake of the goat's path. Many visitors spy goats on Gloomy Knob near the middle of the bay.
