Pika's are really cute. They make me think of a cross between a mouse and a rabbit:-)

Adorable little creature. Your little one looks so friendly.

They're definitely cute, and as soon as they feel threatened, they hide in the rocks.
Good luck, I hope you get nice shots of them on Mt. Rainier!

Pika is one of the animals I'm hoping to spot at Mt. Rainier! I can hear them when I hike, but never seen them. :-(
