During our last visit to Carnero Lake (kritterspaw.com/2020/08/16/carnero-lake/), we encountered some playful chipmunks.
I watched them for hours as they got used to me being there, as I inched closer and closer to them.
Once they got comfortable with me being there, I watched them run around and play, chase each other around the rocks and through the forest.
It’s amazing what you can get if you sit still long enough and exercise a little patience.
I think there’s a lesson there.
