"Host of the Rockies"

On any photo expedition in The Colorado Rockies, a welcoming committee consisting of hundreds of Gold Mantled Ground Squirrels awaits your arrival.  Eager to pose for handouts, Park Rangers discourage feeding or getting too close to these native inhabitants due to the diseases currently running rampant and carried by these furry critters. But these warnings don't restrict you from capturing these photogenic little fellows with your camera.

  1. Cute! It would be hard not to feed them. Our local grey squirrels aren't nearly as endearing.
