By: Shane Bender The Scene It was cold October morning in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I had 2 pairs of socks under my shoes, multiple layers of clothes, gloves, and a chair. As I walked out of sight of anyone at the bottom of the hill, I sat down in my chair for a period of reflection and prayer. Quickly, I noticed a squirrel that seemed to be upset at my presence. He sat up in a tree staring at me and making an unusually large amount of noise. Had I somehow interrupted his plans? Over the next 2 hours, the squirrel would run by me getting acorns or some kind of food and put them in a hole in the ground. He was working very hard on this mid-October day.
