Chattering chipmunk spotted on trail in Mineral King National Park, California.
This is a ground squirrel (chipmunks have stripes on their cheeks). It looks like a Cascade Ground Squirrel (grey belly), however, based on your location, Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel seems more likely (but their belly is usually cream).
Beauty! It looks like a pregnant female :-)
Awww, did you catch him in a yawn? so cute! Welcome to Project Noah and your first spotting!
