I must be the only person in the Pacific Northwest who can’t get a decent picture of a squirrel! They are everywhere this time of year and I tried this morning, during my training run, to snap several pics and they must have known it, because they kept avoiding me at just the perfect time. I then went rock climbing with my kids and remembered that we saw several of these little guys at Smith Rocks State Park.
This is the yellow bellied marmot and they are everywhere in central/southern Oregon. They were willing to pose for pictures at all times!
If you are interested in learning more about what Smith Rocks State Park is like and what a great time my crazy family had climbing for four days, then check out this post, “A family vacation that really Rocked!”
Hopefully I will be able to find a critter closer to home for tomorrow!
