Glacier National Park, Montana: Goat Lick

Consider this an eye test. As in, find the goats.

The goats of Glacier National Park in the summer go under U.S. Route 2 to the walls of the Flathead River. There they seek minerals in the rocks. When they find them, and they have to do some steep walking to do so, they lick them.

And that's how you get "Goat Lick."

There are a couple in the picture as I recall. My guess would be in the middle, just to the right of the trees that's the dead center of the photo. But since from this distance the goats are dots, don't strain your eyes.

By the way, this part of the park has no admission charge; it's just down the road from Marias Pass.
