Anytime a person walks along the paved trail in the Dry Canyon recreational area of Redmond, Oregon, they will hear the loud, high-pitched warning chirps from the yellow-bellied marmot who live in the rocks along the canyon walls.
Most of the marmots, also known as rock chucks, aren’t that old, but the a week or so ago while wandering the trail area, I came across the granddaddy of all rock chucks.
Old, gray, and grumpy looking…just like the way people describe me. 8v)
