Vista photo of the trail where we observed the Pika for dramatic effect. Does anyone know if this would be subspecies albata, just due to location?

The American pika (Ochotona princeps), a diurnal species of pika, is found in the mountains of western North America, usually in boulder fields at or above the tree line. They are herbivorous, smaller relatives of rabbits and hares.
