Palmer’s Chipmunk
Palmer’s Chipmunk (Tamias palmeri)- my summit buddy on Cathedral Rock.
Spring Mountains, Nevada. Summer 2009.

Palmer’s Chipmunks live only on Mount Charleston in the Spring Mountains, west of Las Vegas. They currently have protection under the Spring Mountain Conservation act in Nevada. Chipmunks usually live on the ground or in underground burrows. Some of these burrows are extremely long and can be up to 30 feet in length (9 meters).
