Tromping to the beat of my trekking poles’ clickety-clack against trailside stones, I notice perched on a low boulder ten feet away a yellow-bellied marmot, fat, slothful, and only superficially interested in me and my dad’s approach. Nozzle pointed heavenward, sniffing our advance, the marmot scuttles under his rock as we pass, unhurried, only to reemerge as soon as we hike several paces beyond. Looks like a giant hamster coated in grizzled cinnamon with a gold spackle gut. I snap a picture. Dad and I are on the fringes of Yosemite National Park’s backcountry above Chilnualna Falls, and we can’t find Grouse Lake for the life of us...
