Chipmunk Island

Our final stop for the day was Pyramid lake which was just over from where we were staying at Patricia lake. We walked out onto Pyramid island which we feel should be renamed Chipmunk Island. The island was heaving with chipmunks running around and playing together. While we took plenty of photos of the landscape around us we also tried to photograph the chipmunks. This was made difficult by the fact it was low light and I couldn’t get a fast enough shutter speed to freeze them in action. Also they were so fast that by the time I had the camera at my eye they had moved.

    good evening – all awesome shots – love the second one especially, with the distant mountain, interesting how the strata are not horizontal. I know this isn’t uncommon, but with the snow it’s more dramatic. hope you’re having a good week

    Hello Scott. Thank you, it was a wonderland of scenery in Jasper. Sights like that were common and all stunning. My week has been busy with work (Stocktake). There never seems to be enough time in the day to fit everything in. How has your week been?

    No rest for the weary here as well, trying to find time for fun… seems a common theme, but it’s all good, many worse off than me. Have a good night
