Another view of the marten we...
Another view of the marten we saw above Mistake Lake on Fremont Peak's Southwest Buttress Route. August, 2005. (I know the marten is not directly related to the mountain, so I will gladly delete it if that is what most people feel is appropriate, but the other marten picture generated some interest so I thought I would at least temporarily post this one).

A marten is one of those animals you don't see too often so I love the shot!

It's good to know what kind of vicious animals you may encounter on the mountain, so that you may be properly armed. Very nice photo... National Geographic material.

Yes, this marten was definitely checking us out at the same time we were checking it out. It kept popping up to look at us, then it would duck under a rock and pop up somewhere else, with this sequence repeating several times.

Pine Martens move so fast! How did you ever get a photo of one, even with it being curious about you? I've only seen them running around after prey--usually a Pika--or briefly checking me out and then running away.

Thanks. We were in a boulder field when we ran into this marten, and for several mintutes we watched as the marten would appear and dissappear around the rocks. Fortuanatley, we were able to get a few pictures before the marten disappeared for good.
