Goat Sightings

The Goat has been traveling the globe and climbing both ice and rock as of late. In conjunction with the "Show Us Your Goat" sticker contest I had wanted to post one Goat image each week and send the winner a Nalgene water bottle but I've been slacking.

So here they are - 4 weeks worth of Goat sticker photos that I chose, by no particular scientific method, to be a weekly winner. Enjoy!

If you haven't submitted a goat sticker image, you still have 11 days until the end of the contest.

Photo Shot by: Rachel Nelson
Photo Location: McAffe's Knob, Catawba VA
About the photo: We were getting in some hiking training for our trip to Peru this summer and thought we'd try and take a few pictures with the goat to get some gear for our trip.

Samuel Huber
Photo Location: Sydney, Australia - Opera House/Harbor Bridge
About the photo: I took this picture at the end of my favorite training run in Sydney. A park loop along the sea wall from the Domain, through the Royal Botanical Gardens, and concludes with a run up the Opera House steps ("Rocky-style"). This observation scope looked like it needed a little spice in its life, so I padded it with the Backcountry Goat.

Photo Shot by: Kim Goldak
Photo Location: Pushkar, India, Asia
About the photo: This photo was taken in a town called Pushkar (Rajasthan) in India. The area is primarily desert. The camel guide took this picture for me. What could be more outdoor than a camel ride in the desert?

Photo Location: Mount Massive, Colorado
About the photo: This shot is from a snowshoeing trip along the Colorado Trail during January. My friend and I started to hiking up Mount Massive (14,421 ft.) as a day trip. Although we were not able to summit, we did end up on this rock out crop with great views. It was a nice spot to stop for lunch.
