Video: Hikers enjoy company of Scotchman Peak goats

The Mountain Goats of Scotchman Peak from Bob Legasa on Vimeo.

HIKING -- We teased you earlier, but now North Idaho videographer Bob Legasa has completed his short feature on the pleasures and personalities you might meet after making a hard 7-mile round-trip hike up Scotchman Peak northeast of Lake Pend Oreille.

Enjoy the video, and please notice a couple of things.

  • The hikers did not feed the mountain goats.
  • The hikers kept their dog under control.

Legasa posted the "mountain goat etiquette" tips for hikers at the end, courtesy of the Friends of the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness.
