A cute one for #MarmotMonday.
This marmot pup was a bit distraught when its mother headed down the mountain and out of sight. It popped tall, trying to spot her then began calling to her. Mama was in no rush to return though and this pup and its siblings ended up navigating the boulder field down the mountain to get to her.
This was taken on a beautiful August morning at 14,000 feet. No doubt this same spot is buried under several feet of snow right now and it will be a few months or more before the snow is cleared and I am able to return.
