Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus) nannies and kids crossing scree slope in the Beartooth Mountains near the Wyoming/Montana border.  The nannies are shedding their heavy winter coat of fur to a new "summer weight" fur coat which will grow long again for the next winter.  Twins or triplets are fairly uncommon among mt. goats and one of these kids probably belongs to another nanny that is outside this photo.  Kids of this age--two months or so--often play/explore together while their mothers feed.
