Made for minimalist backpackers who move fast through the mountains, the Black Diamond Beta Light Shelter is an ultralight option that won't weight you down or take up too much space in your streamlined pack. It sets up using your trekking poles, so there's no need to make room for awkward tent poles in your pack, and the SilNylon fabric is extremely lightweight, yet tough, so it can withstand your adventures from the AT to the Rockies. This shelter is ready to go on trips where the forecast is completely clear, although it can be outfitted with additional accessories when the weather is less predictable, or you're simply willing to carry a bit of extra weight. There is an optional floor (sold separately) that you can bring for extra protection from wet ground, and the seams can be treated with McNutt Sil-Net Sealer (not included) to prevent leaks when the rain starts coming down. Black Diamond also offers optional bug netting (sold separately) to keep the skeeters out when the swarms come out in summer.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
