 In the South Colony Lakes...

is he's had a run-in with them before. The marmots in Colorado are being desensitized by ever increasing human traffic. Since it is we that invade their homes, such measures must be taken. Either that or exterminate them. I think we'll just have to live with the risks!

Holy Cross Wilderness after a climb of the Cross Couloir a marmot stole my Patagonia long underwear while we were taking an afternoon nap! Later that summer, we had to defend our camp from a tribe of marmots while in the Gore Range on a backpacking trip.
