Pika near Mount of the Holy Cross
One of the
first pikas was near the bottom of Mount of the Holy Cross, just up the
trail from East Cross Creek. I found her in the evening. She came out
of her hole, ran into her hole, came out again, went in again and then
watched me quietly from under the rock ledge. I stopped to see her again
the next day. Pam seems a good name for her because of her round face
and soft, blondish fur. I can't explain the connection.

from Mount of the Holy Cross you can see Cross Creek meandering.
Moose are said to live down there.
