As you ask yourself what you're doing up at the upper reaches of the mountain peak, you can't help but be grateful that you brought Patagonia's Pluma Jacket along with you. The waterproof, breathable, three-layer Gore-Tex Pro material doesn't just protect you from the stinging bits of snow and ice, it also cuts right through the biting winds of the tempest that you're slowly trudging through. As the storm grows ever more violent, bring up the Pluma Jacket's hood over your helmet and cinch it down with the easy to use single pull adjustment system for additional protection.Waterproof taped seams block out snow and moisture while also cutting down the bulk of the jacket so you can effectively scramble up the last rocky section of the ascent. Just as you near the top of the peak and prepare to make your descent, you can't help but want to stop and take a photo. The tall front pockets are easy to access under your harness as you grab your phone while the storm finally begins to subside. Then it hits you, that's why you put yourself through the inclement weather and high elevations. It's all for the view.

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.
