Durable, supportive boots are a must when covering miles of rugged terrain with a heavy pack on your back, but overly heavy boots can take a toll on your feet and legs when you're walking upwards of 15 miles a day. Designed to save weight, without sacrificing the durability for which La Sportiva is known, the Trango TRK GTX Men's Boot is a solid choice for the weight-conscious backpacker that still wants a boot that will withstand heavy wear in mountain ranges as rugged as the Tetons, Beartooths, or North Cascades.An abrasion-resistant polyester mesh is supported by La Sportiva's TPU Thermo Tech Application reinforcements for bombproof durability, while rubber toe and heel rands protect against rocks, downed logs, and brush in those prone-to-wear areas. Behind the Trango's lightweight upper is a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort insert for waterproof and breathable protection for those days a mid-afternoon rainstorm catches you somewhere between the summit and camp. Sportiva even gave the Trango an aggressive Vibram Mulaz sole for rock-solid traction on surfaces ranging from packed dirt to gritty granite in the high alpine, and added a lightweight dual-density MEMlex midsole for extra comfort when exploring miles away from any trail, or well-established route.

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.
