Grand Teton National Park, WY

Wildlife abounds in Grand Teton National Park. During our first few hours here, we saw a chipmunk eating flowers and a heard of elk, in addition to everything you see below. I am now faced with the terrible decision – which is the cutest National Park animal – a pika or a marmot? Or the Prairie Dogs from Wind Cave?

Yellow Bellied Marmot

We saw dozens of these dapper Yellow Bellied Marmots. I’d like to cuddle them.

Tiny, chirpy pika peeked out of his (her?) hiding hole.

One thought on “Grand Teton National Park, WY

  1. Pikas are the cutest. Although I most want to cuddle a marmot. (I decided this sitting on a trail in Yellowstone with one on each side of me taking pictures. I was SO MAD when a couple walked up the trail loudly talking with bear bells clanging. DIDN’T YOU COME OUT HERE TO SEE WILDLIFE?! ‘Scuse me.)
