American Pika
Photographer: Darcy Gloer
Location: Rock Glacier in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada
Story: 
I had learned that Rock Glacier was a good place to see Pikas if you knew where to look. Pikas are small mammals that sort of resemble a hamster. They exclusively live at high elevations, generally in loose rocky terrain, so Rock Glacier is a perfect habitat for them.
