Several weeks into your road trip to the Pacific Northwest, you've slept in 20 different spots in over eight states, but they all felt like home thanks to Mountainsmith's 2-Person Upland Tent. A no-frills 3-season option for car camping and shorter backpacking trips, the Upland delivers great value and some rain cover along the way. Rolling into Big Bend Campground on Oregon's North Umpqua River, you and your significant other make short work of erecting the classic 3-pole design, and because it's a free-standing tent, there's little need to spend too much time bending metal stakes with random river rocks. But this being Oregon, there was a light downpour last night, so the cap-style rainfly is probably a good idea, but even so, the front door is water-resistant, minimizing the potential discomfort that another storm may bring.

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.
