Living on the edge

This photo was taken from the top of Angel’s Landing, one of the more popular hikes in Zion National Park. After reaching the top, we took in the views for a couple minutes then found a place to sit and enjoy a snack. The chipmunks in Zion have clearly learned that hikers are a good source of food, as they have no fear approaching people or their backpacks to try and find something to eat. This particular chipmunk was especially brave, not only because he scurried around inches from the edge of a cliff that dropped off thousands of feet, but because he had no problem running across the backpack which was literally inches in front of me. Sadly for him, his quest to find a snack was unsuccessful.
