    For those who aren't familiar with the view - it's the downstream face of the dam and those dots are bighorns WALKING ACROSS IT. They're licking the surface - salt, maybe?

    That is definitely an O M G!

    Wonder how they manage to "stick" to it?

    Another site says that these pictures were of ibex taken in the Alps.

    Still amazing - no matter where it was taken.

    OK my husband does not think this pic actually was taken without being doctored up. What do you say? Did you take the pic? I say it is true but he is a doubter. Help me out and let me know. Thanks

    I don't think it is doctored. However, I compared it to a pic off the Net for Buffalo Bill Dam and I do not believe they are the same. Goats are very sure-footed critters. In Co we saw them in places that were unbelievable. Here's the pic I compared it to:

    According to about.com, this is the newest current "urban legend" It's not true, and the photo is doctored. Sorry, this is a cool photo, but it's a hoax!
