... also making hay. Pikas are about the size of a hamster and marmots are almost as big as a ground hog. As we headed up the trail we heard the pikas squeaking to each other. At one point one ran right between Larry and I on the path. Unfortunately, most of the alpine wildflowers are done by now but I did see a few. On a side path we saw mushroom rocks, dark schist on top and granite below. Because the granite erodes faster than the schist, ...
