Sounds like a great day. We have to savour those moments. I'm gonna try to learn a lesson from your turtles and learn to relax in the sun more often.

They were photographed in the St. Mihiel Preserve in the SW 'burbs of Chicago, part of the Cook County Forest Preserve District.

I don't think I've ever heard of a Hoary Marmot! Are you sure you didn't just make that up and stage a photo with two stuffed animals? That is frowned upon in a forum such as this! ~wink~
