Alpine ibex Walking the Dam

Ok, show me your hands.  How many of you out there would want to do this?


These are some pictures Carol’s Mom forwarded to me from a friend (relative?) in France.

Here is the original email text (in French):

Le bouquetin des Alpes (Capra Ibex) aime brouter les mousses et lichens et lécher les concrétions salines qui se forment sur la digue du barrage.

And the translation:

The Alpine ibex (Capra Ibex) loves to graze on lichens and mosses and lick the salt concretions that form on the embankment of the dam.
