Monday Marmot Blogging

Marmot - Yosemite  1985

Taken during a 1985 backpacking trip in Yosemite that I took with Joe Mundy, Joe Grant and David Berman. One of our camps was above timberline, in the granite near Donahue Pass, where we encountered this fellow looking for some handouts. (He didn't get any.)

So this is why I'd like to go back in time and give myself a modern camera. The photo was taken with a twin-lens Mamiya camera, auto-nothing. It certainly looks as if I focused on the granite right in front of the creature, doesn't it?
