Attack of the Killer Chipmunks

June Lake, California

I'm feeding the chipmunks in our campsite bread and apple pieces. They scold each other, competing for the food supply. I get bored with the pictures of chipmunks and go back to reading my book. Suddenly, three of them run over my feet chasing each other. I scream and yell, "Holy #$%!" convinced that I'm being targeted by small crazed blood-sucking rabid rodents.

I fall out of the lawn chair. That's all right. Jimmy Carter made the news when he pounded a swimming rabbit with an oar, thinking he was under attack.

We find a place for lunch along a high stream in a Yosemite meadow.

Here are our friends, George and Danielle, with Mrs. Phred.

I think this is Tioga Lake, at about 9,500 feet. We visited a lot of lakes this week.
