This Alpine Ibex was up over 10,000 feet (3396 meters according to the map). Far above the tree or even grasses below.
Though they've been introduced to areas lower down, they seem to naturally prefer the inhospitable rocks and snow areas way up there.
He may look friendly but he was definitely letting me know he was going to charge any minute. Got the shot and backed out quick.
