19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This squirrel found its breakfast in the early morning. These small rodents are used to frigid temperatures and ever-changing weather in the alpine mountain tops. I came across this guy in White River National Forest in Western Colorado near Aspen at 11,000ft above sea level.
