We were driving down Tioga Road on Highway 120 in Yosemite. Our friend, Alan, was getting tired of driving, so we pulled off the side of the road so his wife could take over driving.
As Alan was walking to the side of the road, he spotted this charming Marmot!
The Marmot was sunning himself and posed for a few pictures for us. He was quite a character. We spent about 10 to 15 minutes as he modeled different poses. He must have been accustomed to tourists since he did not run off and was pretty friendly.
We had a wonderful time with our Marmot model!
