Olympic marmot

My holiday weekend was spent on an awesome trip to the Olympic peninsula in Washington. Among the many things I was hoping to see (and we were quite successful with my rather long wish list -- thanks, Laura!) was the Olympic marmot. This wonderful alpine species is endemic to the peninsula, which made it even cooler to find along the trail.
