This cute little furry creature is a Pika. I found this seemingly fearless creature near Aspen, Colorado. I say that he was fearless because he let me get very close with my camera.
Pika’s are residents of the high country. They tend to live mostly above treeline in rocky outcroppings. If you have ever been on a hike above tree line in Colorado you have most likely heard their chirps. They have a high-pitched squeak that they use to communicate.
