Happy Monday!! Today’s picture is from @stacie.outside— how amazingly dramatic does this look? I’m tellin ya, marmots are the models of the alpine!! ・・・ “Mama and baby hoary marmot on smokey Parker Ridge in Banff National Park 🐾” Thanks @stacie.outside for this amazing photo!!
The hoary marmot was a new species for me this year. Definitely surprised by how curious these animals are of humans. Somewhat fearless in what they choose to chew on or eat, we left our hiking poles at the bottom of the cliffs leading up to the peak. When we returned we found one nipping at the handle, leaving some bite marks behind. #cangeo#cangeotravel#sharecangeo
On a wet and cloudy day like this, all I want is to #cuddle with a #furrycreature like this one. This is #hoarymarmot aka #thewhistler who makes a high pitch sound to alert other members of its colony of possible danger. Too bad this friendly #alpine buddy probably is already underground staying away from the cold.
