On July 9, 2006 we stood on Mt. Humprey, the highest point in Arizona. As we soaked up the view, two little chipmunks appeared from the rocks.
What made this even more special is that earlier that morning, Cami had mentioned feeding chipmunks at her grandparent’s cabin as a child. Something I had never experienced. Could this possibly be my chance? Was I really going to be able to hand feed chipmunks, while sitting on the top of this mountain? I put out my hand and to my surprise this little guy was extremely friendly. So friendly, he jumped on my shoe and we shared a moment that I will never forget. Nature Rocks!
