I also have had a large bunny living under a big bush for the last couple of years. I was afraid the weasel would eat it but last week a car went by and bunny ran for the bush but so did weasel, they practically ran into each other and both quickly turned and ran the other way. So no to bunny snacks ? Hope so.

:rof laughing: that must have been so funny!

To see marmots around here in Conifer, go to Staunton State Park. They hang out by the old historical cabins, at Elk Falls Pond & a few other places in the park. They also "celebrate marmots" with Marmots Days in June (???). I know someone will correct the date and/or be more specific with the days :)

While hiking a few weeks ago, I saw a white ermine scampering along the creek near 285 at Myer Ranch. Quite a surprise.

Staunton State Park Celebrates Marmot Fest June 24/25

PINE, Colo. – Staunton State Park is celebrating Marmot Fest Saturday, June 24, and Sunday, June 25. Marmots are plentiful at Staunton and ready to be outside after a long winter, so June is the perfect time to see the pups and marmot families playing and basking in the sun at Staunton!

Festivities abound between 10 am and 3 pm and include activities for youngsters and the young at heart:
• Marmot games and puppet making – be the marmot
• Investigate a burrow on the marmot crawl
• Scope out marmots with the park’s marmot monitors 9:30 – 1:30
• Learn about marmots on a scavenger hunt in the park
• Marmot vs dog challenge – does your dog measure up?
• Guided Hikes at 9:30 and 11:30
• Rock Climbing – 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. – Instruction and equipment provided
• Friends of Staunton State Park "Adopt-a-Marmot" Stewardship Program.

Years ago, there was a mink farm on Lookout Mountain; they certainly could have spread.

There were mink and chinchilla farms all up the old Highway 40
corridor in Mt. Vernon canyon. (Now I-70) They were on Lookout,
Genesee Park and on the Mt. Vernon side as well.
