Technically, this isn't an invisible marmot because you can actually see him - just not very well. This little guy was happily munching away at something on the Skyline Trail when we walked by. He did raise his head when I put away my camera, which proves to me that marmots are evil and must be stopped. Despite the evil marmots, the day at Rainier was amazing with clear, blue skies and temperatures in the 80's. I actually thought it was too hot - and at 6300 feet, that is saying something. You will also notice that the mountain feels the same way and could use a good dusting of snow to pretty it up. More pictures here.
