The way up was steep enough that you didn't think about much more than simply getting to the top, but now that it's time to head back down you're realizing just how steep it was. When you're taking on tricky descents the Leki Micro Vario Carbon AS Trekking Poles have your back with the reliable performance and shock-absorbing protection that'll get you to back to the trailhead without a hitch. They're outfitted with Leki's Dynamic Suspension System, which dampens vibrations for a controlled plant on technical trails, and also reduces peak impact by approximately 40% to protect muscles, joints, and ligaments. For maximum packability on extended backpacking trips these poles collapse down to under 16 inches, and also adjust within an 8 inch range to accommodate variable terrain. Both the folding and adjustment features come with easy-to-use locking mechanisms for ultimate convenience, while the ultralight weight, high traction carbide tip, and extended grip give you the all around trail performance you need for any adventure.

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.
