Mr. Moe

So the hubs and I kinda love going on hikes. It's great exercise, the fresh air feels amazing, and the scenery is always to die for! We've only been on a few hikes together, but this latest one was so much fun! We were gone a big chunk of the day and we hiked 3 miles up and then the 3 miles back down. This is us at the top: we obviously felt very accomplished with ourselves.

We began to eat our lunch when all the sudden this little guy popped up!
I was SOO excited because I had never seen a chipmunk in real life before! He was just scampering around and wasn't too skiddish of us. He would come fairly close.

Then the little guy scampered over and grabbed the corner of my sandwich that I had thrown in the bush! Then he perched up on this rock and ate the rest of it! I was laughing so hard because I thought it was hilarious that he had done that! (Well...I couldn't laugh TOO hard because I didn't want to scare him away!)

Then he left the crust! Just like a little kid.

Then we had the brilliant idea to give him a hot cheetoh. He totally ate some of it! I guess he wasn't too fond of it because he didn't eat the rest and wasn't too keen on being by us anymore! Haha...we probably set his tiny mouth on fire! So that was the last we saw of him.

On our way back down we decided to name him Moe. Moe gave us quite the entertainment for a good 20 minutes! I'm hoping he will rendezvous with us again soon!
