The Climbing Gopher

The Climbing Gopher
I have never seen a gopher climb up into the brush like this before. I guess he thinks he's a squirrel! I'm calling him a "gopher" because he didn't appear to have a bushy tail, as I saw when he finally ran off. Toiyabe Range, central Nevada, USA.

Thanks, everyone! It was highly untypical behavior, at least if I've identified the rodent right, so I was delighted to be able to capture it.
