The cheeky chipmunks of Washington and Oregon

Chipmunk
My favourite chipmunk photo of the trip.
I had to have a separate post for these obnoxious chipmunks. They were everywhere and they seem to know that campers/hikers are easy targets for their big brown eyes and begging. They did a good job of sneaking up on us and trying to steal our lunch. Some were *quite* fat. I figure you guys don’t mind a post full of cute mammal photos, right? Expect a similar squirrel post in the near future.

Oregon and Washington have 5 species of chipmunk and I honestly have no idea which species this is (or if it’s multiple species). I scratched my head over it for a while, then shrugged and gave up. If you’re a mammalogist and the answer is obvious to you, comment below and enlighten us all!
