Aren't these the cutest little critters you've ever seen?!  Or at least pretty darn close to cutest ever!?  We were able to enjoy the antics of this family of golden-mantled ground squirrel as we had our lunch while doing a little exploring.  They were an absolute hoot to watch.

Siblings rough-house no matter what species!
Look at those little hands!


  1. Ground squirrels are a garden pest here. But, you have some excellent pictures, especially the ones where they are playing.

  2. I suppose cute pests are the worst kind. I can stomp on a grasshopper pretty easily in defense of my garden, but taking out one of these sweet things?! ...that would be impossible!
