RFI Chipmunk near Yellowstone National Park

Attached are two images of a chipmunk sp. taken 15 June 2015 at the Rock Creek Scenic Overlook near Red Lodge Montana, on our way to the NE entrance of Yellowstone.  I believe three species of chipmunk are known from the area.  Can anybody help identify this one from the photos?  Thanks in advance.

    I’d say Uinta

    I agree with Jon. The Uinta doesn’t have a dark stripe on the side below the white one. Neither of your shots show that dark stripe. It’s much harder to differentiate between the Least Chipmunk and the Yellow-pine Chipmunk (at least for me). Which is why I have too many “unknown” chipmunk photos in my archive from YNP :).

    Thank you very much. Uinta it is. Now I have to learn how to pronounce it. You-in-ta?
