We follow the ridge line to the south and negotiate rock faces and timber but don't find anything close to pika habitat. I wanted to do this to satisfy my curiosity about whether there were any more colonies herabouts. I don't think there are. Everything at the edge is straight off over cliff faces and the time is slipping into late afternoon. We have a ways to go so we finally depart those drop offs and manuever our way back down the mountain to where we have parked.
