Richardson Ground Squirrel

The Richardson ground squirrel, also known as the Wyoming ground squirrel (Citellus richardsoni) is smoke-gray washed with cinnamon-buff. Its belly is pale buff or whitish. It is found in small portions of Utah, Nevada, Idaho and larger portions of Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, the Dakotas and up into Canada. I photographed this one
in the Henry's Fork River Basin near the Utah-Wyoming border on a trip to climb King's Peak.
