Phelps Lake and Death Canyon

It’s a really enjoyable hike: after a short walk through woods you first see the lake from an elevated overlook, then walk down the trail enjoying the view of the lake, and turn to the canyon at a fork (the other trail goes to a beach at the lake). The canyon trail climbs up, but it was not difficult at all: I was not in a hurry, and enjoyed beautiful vistas and friendly wildlife along the way.

This biggest relative of a squirrel came really close to me, and did not look scared at all.

There is a cute book for kids "Little Marmots" on Amazon: and one for grown-ups
