Took my first trip to the Rocky Mtn. National Park a couple of weeks ago.
Had no idea what little hams these cuties are. They seemed quite happy to pose for me.

Glad you put a title on this - I had no idea what a Marmot looked like :)

We were hiking a few days ago in Yellowstone and sat watching two of these litte critters for about an hour. Like you said, they are quite the ham's and will come pretty close to you if you sit still.

You'd be alarmed if they were to whistle, its amazingly loud for such a small animal. Almost like a scream

Great shots and love the blowing snow

Thanks...now I'm glad they did not whistle...!

The blowing snow was just an added bonus for this southerner :)
