Risk Takers

While in glacier park this past July, at the top of Logan's pass, we spotted mountain goats. They were in the parking lot at the top of the pass (licking the antifreeze spilled from overheated cars - rest assured they they weren't harmed from it), appearing unexpectedly over the edge of the road and on the sides of mountains that were so steep, it was amazing that there weren't constant rock slides. Their agility is only surpassed by the Big Horn Sheep, which we also spotted in precarious places.
This painting is a whimsical contrivance of my imagination and a tribute to those who take calculated risks - based upon their skills and abilities. What seems dangerous and risky to some folks, may actually be a walk in the park for others.....or a simple stroll down a rocky slope to reach a tasty bite.
Deuteronomy 8:18
But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.

I love this.
Um... isn't antifreeze poisonous to animals?
