Grand Canyon wildlife comment

Not trying to be critical, just educational.  I suspect the Mountain Goats you saw were actually Desert Bighorn Sheep.  Arizona doesn't have mountain goat in the wild.  We do have two types of sheep, Desert Bighorn and Rocky Mountain Bighorn.  As I recall, the Grand Canyon has the Desert Bighorn variety.

Fyi, Arizona's elk are all transplanted and are Rocky Mountain Elk.  Our original elk were Merriam's Elk, but have been extinct for over a hundred years.  The elk comeback here is a remarkable achievement.
