I wanted to let you know that I found yellow-bellied marmots living in the Pilot Range, on the east-facing slopes below Patterson Pass, on the Utah side. This was on May 23 2016. There are abundant granite rock outcrops on the north side of the "road" (completely washed out in places) leading up to the pass; the marmots live among the boulders. Interestingly I did not find any sign of marmots in valley to the SW of Patterson Pass (an unnamed valley leading down to the NV side), despite excellent-looking habitat--lots of talus and meadow and some aspen. Am writing the discovery for publication. The geology of the range on its east side stretching to the NE is much different that the rest of the range; i.e., granite instead of quartzite/dolomite/limestone.
Majestic view, very like ! Regards, Zoli.
Sweet . . . liked!
A glorious day for a stroll on the edge of civilization . . . 8^)
Yes Rollie, I started very early to drive here with no specific idea of where to shoot. It turned out to be a magical spot. Greetings, Greg.
Thank you for viewing my photos and comment.
Ralph - this is beautiful too. Idaho surely must be a lovely part of the US. L&F, Heather.
