Anecdotal only, no photo.

Saw a single pika just below the top of Aasgard Pass.

I heard them alarming all over the area on both sides of the pass. It sounded like quite a large colony there. I didn't see or hear their signs in other parts of the Enchantments.

Their call is different than the Sierra Nevada pika I'm familiar with.

This is a common plant in along streams in mountain meadows at middle elevations (I've noticed them between 6,000 to 8,000 feet elevation) of California mountains. A friend called them skunk cabbage, but I don't believe this is Lysichiton americanus. Any ideas?

ID made.
