Homer, the titular little lost llama, snuggles up under one of his furry rescuers after he was found on Pikes Peak.

Want to revisit the cuteness of the baby llama who was stuck on Pikes Peak in 2009? Now you can share Homer the llama's story as a children's book, "The Little Lost Llama" illustrated by one of his rescuers.

Tracy duCharme helped rescue Homer nine years ago, and worked on the book with author Marie Ballard. DuCharme talked to Colorado Matters about Homer's odyssey on the mountain and what it took to get him down.
