Hoary Marmot

Washington

The hoary marmot, so called because of the mantle of white fur that covers its back, is a common sight for visitors to Mt. Rainier NP. A member of the rodent family, marmots are active creatures and can be seen mostly in the alpine and sub-alpine mountain slopes where they build dens in the rocks.
