Capricorn in front of Matterhorn Zermatt Switzerland

When you go to higher elevations early in the morning or around dusk you will often see off in the distance Mount Goats locally known as chamois. A chamois is a Horned animal (male) that can almost walk on a flat cliff wall. You can often look up a and see these magnificent creatures hanging there with their hoofs almost off the tiny edge they have found to cling to.

We always keep you eyes looking up the cliffs if you want to see them
