06-05-10: Chipmunk Near Trail Ridge Road
Taken at a turn out on the highest highway in the USA. Over 11,000 feet high, and above treeline, and the road had only been clear of snow for a couple of days. Yet dozens of chipmunks still knew where to go to flash those cute big glossy eyes at snack-carrying tourists.
Also, no, I did not feed him. Its against Rocky Mountain National Park rules and for good reason. However, some other motorist did, and I took advantage of the chipmunk's short snack
