A hiker guards its food from a curious marmot

After making the descent down a seemingly endless trail of switchbacks, my backpacking companion takes a break to eat some food. A curious marmot wouldn't leave us alone as it approached closer and closer looking for any food that might find its way near our curious new friend. My friend of course tried to keep the marmot away but it wouldn't leave us alone.
