Mineral King Valley
Along the way, gorgeous wildflowers covered the mountain sides.
|Sulfur Buckwheat, I think|
|Indian Paintbrush Mixed with Buckwheat|
|Too Many Beautiful Flowers to Name|
I will say that Mineral King was originally set out to become a ski resort, developed by Disney. However, this was the first time that the Sierra Club was able to prove that time out in the great outdoors has an intrinsic value.
Our trip would have been very different if Disney had come into the valley.
I think I like it better now...
Really and truly
America the Beautiful
