A fisher near sunrise camp?

A fisher near sunrise camp? by netkat, at 9:48 p.m. on 30 August 2010,

On my way to Sunrise Camp in Yosemite over the weekend, in the trees on the edge of the meadow about 1 mile from the Sunrise Camp, I saw a very unusual animal. It had a smallish head (rather like a weasel) and was long bodied with a black tail. From the photos I've been able to find, it seems the animal resembles a fisher but the elevation where I saw this animal was about 9000 feet. Could it possibly have been a fisher? If not a fisher, what else could it have been. Definitely was not a marmot (as I had seen one earlier in the day).
