A marmot hitched a ride from Winter Park down to Parker Saturday. @ParkerPolice
picked it up from a garage after the individuals discovered it when they got home. Today, we relocated the marmot back to the mountains at Staunton State Park.
Ironically enough, it was actually Marmot Fest at Staunton State Park this weekend.
Every year, a half-dozen or more marmots accidentally hitch-hike from the high country down to the Front Range. Marmots like the ambient heat of the engine, or at times some of the wire coatings are now made from soy-based insulation and that smells like food when heated.
