Artist's Description

Flowers?!? For me? You shouldn’t have!

I was amazed at the diversity of plants this little guy was gathering. Big mouthfuls of plants, grasses, and flowers – big and small.

Pikas are considered an endangered species due to climate change. They’re considered a “canary in the coal mine” species and are very susceptible to climbing temperatures and seem to be moving to higher and higher altitudes to escape the heat. But there’s a limit to how high they can climb (eventually they run out of mountain). And because of the higher temperatures, they can’ t migrate to a higher peak as that would mean descending to a lower (and hotter) environment to do so.

Location: Mt Evans Wilderness Area
