Trip to Grinnell Lake at Glacier

After a nice lunch on the shore of Grinnell Lake at Glacier National Park, we were visited by a couple of guys looking for leftovers. The first was a cute chipmunk and the second was a creature that I had never seen before. I believe he is a Pine Marten. Here's an image. If anyone can id this guy, please let me know.

It could be an American Marten, also known as a Pine Marten, which is supposed to be about the size of a housecat. If it was a little smaller than that with a white or light-colored belly it might have been a Least Weasel.

I haven't made it to Grinell Glacier. I'd like to go sometime.
