What a great shot!

Did he really bite your toe? How did that happen?

Re: What a great shot!

Yeah, he really did. When I reached the summit, I took my boots and smartwools off to give my feet a break. The marmot was really adorable and very curious about the visitors to his summit. I was lying on the rocks to relax and enjoy the weather and I noticed something rustleing near my feet. I thought that was strange but ignored it, then realized it was my pack shifting. As I sat up to see what was going on with my bag the Marmot sunk it's front teeth into my big toe. Luckily it was startled by my sitting up though and didn't cause too much damage. It didn't get away with any skin but my toe bled a little.

Very cool. Not only the marmot, but the scenery behind kicks ass. I should be up there in a week!
