Mountain Views from Large to Small

Time to share some more Mountain views starting with the whole thing, down to the tiny.
The first is a view from the Rim Trail out of Surise. Emmons Glacier is the largest in surfact area in the Lower 48. The river is the Whiter River.
This little critter hangs out in rocky places. He is a pica. Seeing one is a treat--getting one to sit still for a photo is a miracle.
About an inch in wingspan, the Blue Lady is also not easy to photograph.

Took the picture of the pica while hiking with one set of grandchildren, and somewhere between this post and the last another grandchild was born...
