My only encounter with Marmots in 2006 in Little Lakes Valley. I keep hearing you can find Marmots in the Sierra everywhere but I have only seen them once...

I have had too many encounters with marmots to count! Here are two I photographed. First is at Sky Blue Lake, second is in Barrett Basin. Second guy was helping me with my laundry!

Not pretty but interesting. My guess is this is Virginia Lake over Duck Pass.

Passes are so stark. I like lakes and people. This is Blackrock pass. I keep posting photos hoping someone will knock me out of the most recent. Please yuall, show me more.

I don't know what a photo chop is but thanks for the compliment. I just thought the Blackrock pass photos looked cool together.
Below was on a really odd x - country route between Scepter Creek and Crown Creek. There was a campsite here too (I was surprised). It was difficult orienteering because this was the only visual clue (map wise) for about 5 hours of hiking.
