This little guy was kind of late for Groundhog's Day, but greeted us outside our motel as we walked along the Spokane River the other weekend when we went to Spokane. He (she?) had lots of burrows and quickly dove out of sight after Dick took several pictures. If we were in the mountains, we'd say it was a marmot, but along the river, maybe groundhog is correct. They're both supposed to be related according to our animal book!
