Mountain goat family, Sierra de La Cabrera below Canchos Gordo and Largo, and high above the Meseta.

Mountain goat family, Sierra de La Cabrera below Canchos Gordo and Largo, and high above the Meseta.
I know I've posted this before but I fell upon it by chance again and thought it worth another airing!
I would ordinarily have gone straight ahead at this point, over the foreground granite slab but I thought better of it. Later, as I looked back at the goats, I saw a nanny goat suckling its kid, not something I could see from here. Unfortunately no photo was possible as it was in direct line with the sun!
This video is worth a look!!!!

I think it quite likely but I read somewhere that it isn't true. I prefer to believe the better sounding story here!

Fabulous photo - it's just as well you didn't go any closer, otherwise it might have spooked them, and the mum and kid might have fallen over the boulder.

I didn't know about the mum and kid when I decided to take the short detour, Jenny, but I'm glad I used my common sense!

En La Cabrera tiene que haver cabras, sinó porque se llamaria así?

Well, the nearby town is called La Cabrera and the Sierra takes it name from it. There is another (larger) Sierra de Cabrera in the provinces of León amd Zamora. Whether they take their names form goats I couldn't say.
