Yawning Pika

Mount Evans Wilderness Area, CO

About the size of your fist, American pika live their entire lifecycle high in the alpine zone - this pika was photographed at about 14,000 feet on Mount Evans. Pika cache an enormous hay stacks of grass and forbs to survive winter, burrowed beneath talus fields on mountain slopes. Because they're already at the top of the world, this cutest of Rocky Mountain mammals is threatened by the climate change "elevator effect", for they can go no higher as the world heats up.

Yawning Pika print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
