One of the animals that Joy really wanted to see while we were in the alpine tundra region on Trail Ridge Road in the Rocky Mountain National Park was the Pika. Pika's are cute little mammals that live in talus fields and harvest plant material. Pikas are not rodents and are more closely related to rabbits. Here are some of the differences between Lagomorphs and Rodents. The little guy sure had quite a view out his front door.
