It’s is a fact universally known, to chipmunk aficionados, that chipmunks are most active early in the morning and late in the afternoon. This would explain why, when I wake at dawn, (well maybe just after, but it’s early), and hop onto my bicycle and race to work, I am dodging and swaying through the scurry of chipmunks.
They do have a tendency to run next to you, or into you (no chipmunks were harmed in the research for this blog), so I’m not going to credit them with large brains. But they do seem friendly and I like that on my lonely morning ride along the river bank.
