My Life with Mountain Goats
From the time I was a child, I was pretty taken in by the magical nature of mountain goats.
As a full-time conservation photographer specializing in mountain biomes and alpine wildlife, it became clear to me that I needed to spend time learning more about these animals, and my project, Life With Mountain Goats, was formed.
During this years-long project, I tracked small mountain goat herds through some of the most rugged mountainous terrain in the lower 48: the San Juan Mountains. I wanted to learn about their behaviors, group dynamics, and seasonal changes. And, of course, I wanted to create beautiful photos!
My new book Life With Mountain Goats is a collection of images, information, field notes, and stories about my time tracking these extremely remote herds. It’s a book for all ages, from the littlest explorers to seasoned pros. It’s currently available for pre-order and will be shipping by December 1st, 2022!
Whether you’re looking to learn about these animals or just take in the mountain views, this book is for you!
