I fell in love with chipmonks when we lived in Wyoming for a few years. I used to take the children to the Vedauwoo State Park for picnics, and we would laugh at the boldness of the creatures. They would jump right up onto the picnic tables and demand food, not beg....DEMAND! I have seen several varieties across the nation, and this is one of my favorites. What personality and attitude! Don't you just love nature?!! Oh, and this one's for you, Mom...Happy Birthday!
