One new photograph, almost every day of the year


We were in the Deschutes National Forest on the way to the head of the Metolius River which bubbles up out of an icy cold spring and emerges as a full-sized river.  The Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels, as close as we get to chipmunks here, pranced around us, clearly acclimated to people.  This little guy squeezed between the railings of a fence and watched me take his photograph as he relaxed in the midday heat. He clearly had the laid back attitude of Alvin the Chipmunk.

    I kind of feel like him in the summer & don’t even have to wear a fur coat.
