Peace Sentry
09/30/2010 17:51
Yesterday 9/29/10, I drove my Jeep on the Red Cone Road, above Webster Pass. The Peace Sentry's brother was at the top of Red Cone, 12,801 ft.

I had stopped at the top and walked around taking pictures and I not seen any living thing. I opened the passenger door and put my camera inside. As I walked behind the Jeep I looked up and there was a Mountain Goat walking towards the Jeep about 15 feet away. Hoping to get a good picture I backed up to get my camera out of the Jeep.

Basically the goat and I hung out at the summit for at least 20 minutes. He walked around but never got far away. Your second picture of your sentry was interesting the way he is at the edge looking down at something. The one on Red Cone did the same on the east side of the summit. He just stood there looking down into the valley perhaps 25 feet from the Jeep.

After taking many pictures I decided I best get going and finish my drive down Red Cone, a very steep and loose road. The goat stayed on the summit and I could still see him as a white dot on the summit even from Webster Pass.

Most likely, since they were by themselves, these two are males assigned to Sentry duty.
