These cute little guys look like a chipmunk, however chipmunks live at higher elevations.

I spilled a little bird seed in my portable blind and had one of these guys come inside and eat it at my feet!  Good sign that you don’t need a blind to photograph these guys!

Although I don’t like cows, I couldn’t resist photographing this family on a rainy New Year’s Day.  In the last week or so, we have received a lot of rain really greening this area up!

Excited to see so many mammals passing through the property. A gray fox has been a nightly visitor on the game camera, javalina come through every couple of days, we even had a skunk! This mule deer walked through a couple of days ago – I have seen them nearby a number of times, but this is the first one I have seen right on site.

Saturday night from our campsite.  Had to work hard for this one – turned off the bar-b-q, set my glass of wine down and grabbed the tripod.  🙂

I love the fact that our home is Alaska is surrounded by large mountain rising up right from town.  However, because of this, we don’t see too many sunsets – I think I have seen more sunsets here in the last week in Arizona as I do in a year in Alaska.  So you can see how this has been a real treat for me – hope you don’t get tired of sunsets!
