The High Sierra, Wildflower Color, Yellow

P1040819We came upon these yellow colored wildflowers in June.  We were hiking in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains at Rock Creek Lake, Devil’s Postpile to Rainbow Falls, Bodie State Historic Park, Panum Crater, Mono Lake, and over Tioga Pass.

About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

  1. Gorgeous photos! Am I being overly sensitive that it looks just a bit dry??? (we certainly do here on the coast)

      I expect California to look dry in June/July. We did have thundershowers with quite a bit of rain/hail on the dry back from Bodie Historic State Park. But, that moisture pretty much turned into steam for a short while, then blew away with the wind. According to some of our guides, Mammoth Mountain had 30 feet of snow this past winter, but everywhere nearby only about 3 feet. Thus, your climate dilemma: too much water concentrated in a few places. Also, the locals suggested that the strong flow of the headwaters of the San Joaquin River (aka Rainbow Falls) would turn to a trickle in a couple of weeks after the snow pack finished melting). Flush your toilets sparingly.

    We also have a lot of yellow wild flowers around here. The yellow-ness-es pop so much that they look so good seeing them altogether.
