I'll give you 4 stars for the dog picture. Most people don't seem to like the dog photos.

Me too. How do the dogs interact with the marmots?

No most people seem to disslike dog photos... or perhaps it is the implication that if a mountain can be climbed by dogs it isn't a real climb. Whatever the case I just like the mountains. When I took these photos I knew nothing about SP... I just wanted photos of my dogs on our mountains. Now that I am posting mountains I find that some of my best photos happen to have dogs in them... Oh well. If nothing else I find the dogs do give that ellusive sense of perpective that many mountain photos lack. Thank you for the high vote.

I have spent a lot of time beating the "leave-it" command into Sopris and Raymonds little heads... right now they are pretty well behaved. Sopris had a run in with a marmot when she was a year old. She stuck her head into a marmot hole and came out with a nasty notch in her lip... she has been much better around them since. Truely my most intimate wildlife encounters have happened when I have been with my dogs. On memorable event was a herd of bighorn sheep following us down from the Iron Nipple-Mount Lindsey saddle... The dogs were leashed but the sheep seemed downright curious. There is a photo I posted on the Mount Lindsey page of these sheep. Another event happened on Grand Traverse Peak in the Gores. Descending from the summit we came across a herd of mountain goats. I sat down with Sopris... while I was whispering for her to be calm one goat approached to within 5 feet of us. I thought Sopris and him would sniff noses. Unfortunately my camera battery was dead in that instance. Obviously I don't have a problem with dogs... trouble dogs are ussualy the fault of the owner.
