Do not feed the wildlife

Taken today at Mt.St. Helens~ The signs said: "Do not feed the wildlife".

 

I was in "Chipmunk" heaven. The chipmunks were not getting handouts but did seem quite acclimated to humans. This is the first time I've been able to get within a couple feet of chipmunks, ever.

 

I didn't know which one I liked best....didn't want to post separately....so here they are....my five favorite shots. The chippie in the first shot had wierd ears. Jasmine liked watching them from the car window.

 

Correction: These are not chipmunks. They are Golden-Mantel Grounds Squirrels .....wow! Thanks "hearman". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden-mantled_Ground_Squirrel
