Hey everyone! Last month my buddy Matt and I went on a two night trip up to Echo Lake in the Catskills. The shelter location was beat up and dirty thanks to some seriously irresponsible campers. They left several sleeping bags, many cooking pots, a queen size pillow (no joke), and some other odds and ends.
The chipmunks were "aggressive" in the sense that they came much closer than I would expect, no doubt due to people feeding them. They really wanted to get at our food. They even succeeded when Matt left his banana chips in the shelter on our day hike up to the summit and ruins. Every chip was gone! Whoops. Matt learned his lesson though. He really loves his banana chips!
