I've certainly seen dozens of pikas through the years, but this was a first (and still only) for me:  a baby.  Well, probably adolescent would be more accurate--it was maybe 2/3 the size of an adult.

Jasper National Park, August 2017.

Good to see you, Paul, and I hope all is well with you.  :) 

A sweet image of this young Pika tucked into its lichen covered rocks, and you can see its already got the Pika attitude!  I can just hear their funny little 'squeak' call.  Its a tough world out there for these little creatures.

Very cute -the environment adds a lot , with all those crevices to hide in. I hope it survives! Nice to see you here again.
