Wildflowers of the High Sierra

Sit back for a hiker’s tour of the High Sierra, the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The mountains extend 400 miles north to south, with the highest point in the lower 48 states, Mt.Whitney, 14,505 feet. Snow is present year round on the granite peaks. Variations in altitude, rainfall, and topography support a wide diversity of mountain wildflowers in summer months. This program is a collection of photos taken over many years of exploring the spectacular trails of the High Sierra.
