Vacation Postcard #7

We are at the Calgary Stampede all day today and I will not be on the internet this evening. We stayed in Medicine Hat, Alberta on Wednesday night and the entire front lawn was taken up by a colony of  "gophers". Gopher is a general term used for a number of burrowing rodents and I do not know what exact species this is. The hotel receptionist told us they were not prairie dogs. They were amusing to watch but I am sure no one would want 100 or so living in their yard.


  1. He is awfully clean - and cute - for someone who lives in dirt!

  2. I think he needs a pedicure. I have seen this little critters and they are fun to watch. I think their minds are as busy as they are. CUTE!
