Chipmunk in Mount Rainier National Park
While hiking the Skyline Trail in Mount Rainier National Park we came across multiple chipmunks! This little guy was a bit off the trail, just enough so I could get a good photo with my zoom lens and he wouldn’t dart away. I don’t like feeding wildlife for the sake of getting a photo, yet these little chipmunks were still willing to hang around and watch us as we walked by. They were so cute as they darted across the top of the snow!
Upper Myrtle Falls
Instead of going to the right from Paradise, we started the Skyline Trail to the left. That took us to the foot of Mount Rainier and made for a delightful ending at Myrtle Falls. For this photo I used about a 1/3 of a second shutter lag and let nature do the rest.
