Goats at Flat Iron?

Post by Froth » Apr 13 2010 9:20 pm

Alright, so I had a great time hiking Flat Iron, but at the end of the trip, we heard goats. Or at least a goatlike sound. Are there goats up there? Maybe it was a bird? I saw birds, but no four legged friends. Help me out here.

I recall the infamous goat frogs from our trip to fish creek, Joe! :)
I don't have a computer… Not because I'm against having one. Really just hasn't been a top priority on my gear list.
I am now attempting to navigate, post, reply (etc..) this site with only an iPhone… Wish me luck!

I was up there last month and I'm an old goat. Mayber there were some other old goats up there.

Rocky Mountain Big horn maybe.

I think what you heard was a Goat on its last voyage caused by one on these ~Creatures~ :scared:

I was with this guy who apparently wears a beanie to keep his head warm while also wearing a tiny tank top for summer. Who's crazy? lol ;)
