Mountain Goats and Muskrat Pushups

 This is the first winter in 6 years that Mountain Goats are wintering right behind our base cabin.  To the far top right you can see the heavily snow worked area...   That is the first thing we saw and then we started to look for the Goats.  Come down the picture to the tall single tree at bottom left of center.  They are right behind it.  We saw three but there might be more.

In the above picture there are six Mushrat pushups.  They find warm air holes and make pack them with lake weeds.  If you go in the top and put your hand down there is a big room down there for eating above the water line.
