First Marmot

Today was one of those harbingers-of-spring days... I saw my first marmot of the year. Go here for last year's post that tells a bit about these mammals. I think today's first sighting of the year came almost two weeks earlier than last year, and that despite some recent snows and cold weather. It has been up near 50 degrees the last two days, though, and that must be enough to signal spring to the 'rockchucks.'
