Marmot Hiding in the Rocks

One of my favorite animals to see in the summer is the yellow-bellied marmot. They are essentially large ground squirrels that live above 6,500 feet in elevation and hibernate in the winter.

All the time I spent in Colorado, I never saw one.

Cute marmot photo! We saw one waddling across a mountain road last week. Unfortunately, we didn't have the camera at the ready.

He looks like he is playing hide and seek with you!
