The Friendly Marmot

I came across this friendly little guy on the Hurricane Hill Trail in Olympic National Park.  This Olympic Marmot wasn’t the slightest bit shy.  In fact, he was the opposite.  He walked right up to hikers and stood up on his back legs.  It looked like it was showing off, as if to say “Look at me!  Aren’t I the cutest furry thing you’ve ever seen?  Can I have some food?”  I continued up the trail without feeding the wildlife, but I’m sure he gets fed by some tourists.  Otherwise, it wouldn’t approach humans so casually.
