There is a marmot living in this part of the rocks. We came face to face when I climbed up and we scared each other!
No words needed.
There were three marmots down the trail watching us. One thing we noticed is that all of the marmots in Yellowstone were silent. I never heard a single one make a noise. When we see them during hikes in our area, they are constantly making loud chirping noises. Maralee does a pretty good marmot chirp and tried to communicate with these guys, but all they did was stop and stare at her.
