Took a quick trip to the Beartooth Mountains and while there drove the Beartooth Highway which I highly recommend.

At the top of Beartooth Pass which is right around 11k ft there's a large outcropping of rock which is home to many Yellow Bellied Marmots.

Really superb image! For interest and printing, I'd prefer a different crop to minimize some of the rocks in the foreground. But the current crop is adaptable to magazine, print and user needs.

Thanks Karen. I cropped it square for Instagram. I don't see me using it anywhere else.

Understood. For posting here and on my website, I crop to suit the image. Not selling my images, I am thankfully free of Instragram, FB, and all that! LOL!

cool shot

We did that drive and stopped to shoot those guys, lots of fun. Also a bunch of chipmunks at a stop along the way. Some scary driving for us easterners :)
