A Hoary Marmot sniffs at us from the cover of low-growing pines. These are one of two marmot species that goes as far north as Alaska. Marmots are members of the rodent family and thrive off of an insect and plant diet. Here in Washington, we can see these as well as Yellow-Bellied Marmots in alpine zones, most notably in Mount Ranier National Park.

The largest ground squirrel in North America, the Hoary Marmot. Anyone who frequents the alpine knows how cute these guys are. Happy Hibernating!

Did you know that Whistler, BC got its’ name from the hoary marmot (Marmota caligata)? Sometimes nicknamed “the whistler,” or “whistle pigs,” the hoary marmot makes a high-pitched whistling sound, and lives throughout the mountains of northwest North America. They also like to chill on rocks.

Thanks @stacie.outside for this amazing photo!!

I saw this happy marmot on the best day of hiking in Tombstone TP. The section between Divide Lake and Talus Lake was exceptional. The trail led through rolling meadows with alpine views all around.

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.

Thanks marmot for posing. #marmot #hoarymarmot #banfflookout

When in Glacier NP, I was surprised how even in areas with little cover for wildlife, how much they blended into the environment. This hoary marmot camouflages nicely into the flowers and rocks. Even being large, these guys and gals were hard to see until they moved. #marmot #hoarymarmot #animal #animals #animalkingdom #animalphotography #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #nanpapix #bestnatureshot #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeaddicts #mountain #glaciernationalpark #loganpass #findyourpark #sony #sonya7riii @glaciernps
