The Friendly Wildlife of St. Elmo, Colorado

A few weeks ago I posted about our excursion to the ghost town of St. Elmo and beyond.  What I neglected to tell you was the age-old tradition we took part in while visiting. It seems that the ground hogs and chipmunks of St. Elmo have quite a reputation in this town.  They gather daily to be fed by eager tourists, and they are surely not shy!  Seems it’s been going on for years and years. The kids had a blast feeding these cute little critters.  It was an interesting experience to say the least!

    Those little guys looked like they really had their cheeks stuffed full. Must have been taking extra for later. They definitely don’t have much fear. I wouldn’t have thought they would walk around on your arm like that. I can imagine the kids would love that interaction. Great shots.
