Just a few photos of some cuddly, little friends we found along the way. The squirrel showed up during the long 92 mile drive into Denali Nat'l Park and posed for 13 well-equipped photographers who had gone a long time between subjects. The pika requires some quiet watching and waiting to catch a glimpse of these elusive creatures. Finally, who can resist a baby orangutan?
