Phil and I were walking around Bear Lake when we came across this little Gold-Mantled Ground Squirrel. He was so cute…and so chubby! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one so big! And there he was…eating his cone from the Douglas Fir Tree and just enjoying the day…and the meal.
I wonder how many he’d eaten to get this fat? I guess he has to bulk up for the long winter of hibernation. He was just too cute…and just sitting there making the perfect “Photo Op” on top of that rock!
