If you hike high enough in the Rockies, you will for sure see these guys. They’re not shy at all, often perching on a boulder, staring at the bipeds as they walk by, and much less annoying than the chipmunks who are always trying to steal your lunch. Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation is actually nearby and does great rehab work, everything from baby squirrels to local waterfowl. I was unaware we had a hitchhiking marmot problem until this report.
Just an FYI – Acts of Kindness is taking a two-week break. I’m traveling this week, and next week is going to be a whirlwind of crazy. Starting with Zander having dental surgery and barrelling to my birthday at the end of the week, with plans for lunches, hiking, and whatever else my friends and I can do to distract ourselves from the dog days of summer.
So, enjoy your marmots, and AoK will return shortly.
