Hammering up steep climbs may not be a favorite past time of every mountain biker out there, but there are some of us who live for them.

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.
