HoaryMarmotBlogging

hoary marmot
The cats are taking the week off.

Saw this hoary marmot on the Rockpile Trail at Moraine Lake. Cool, eh?

Looks like a rock chuck. They carry plague...

But at least it's not a cat. ;)

Dr Jenn - no new cat pictures, but there was that hoary marmot. What to do? What to do? ;-)

LL - PDM predicted you'd say something like that last line...

Wha? I'd hate to disappoint my fans... ;)

I always thought the term "Hoary Marmot" was a cuss word. My Grandma used to say it a lot. If wildlife and my hiking experience I think maybe I have mistaken the actual creature for a Beaver on trails. Great replacement for cat blogging.

I've never even heard of a hoary mamut. Now I've seen one. Huh.

The only time I ever saw a marmot was in Montreal in that big park overlooking the city.
