Here’s a nice blog, Chip Pics, about a hiker who discovers a nearly frozen, barely alive chipmunk. She was able to nurse the little guy back to life and he has become a part of the family.
Here was Chip as I found him: curled up, cold, appearing to be dead, in the middle of a trail in the Olympics.
Over the next hour, as I held him in my hand, he warmed up and started to move. Here he is nestled in my fleece hat. He’s just a few weeks old … eyes still closed, very immature.
