While walking on a road that went up a mountain side we
heard faint squeaks a short distance away.
Upon closer inspection, we realized
the squeaks belonged to a Pika!
The squeaking little mammal was running through
the snow, leaving tiny little footprints behind him.
This was an incredible
experience because these animals only live at these high altitudes.
our once in a lifetime opportunity to be at these elevations with a breathtaking
view of the mountains
and to see an animal most people only read about.
