Hi folks, the flowers at Carson Pass are just going off. If you are in the neighborhood I highly recommend checking out the Mokolumne Wilderness. Start at the snow park at the summit of Carson Pass and hike south into the wilderness. It is a truly amazing show this year.

oooh, I can't wait! I saw sooo many beautiful flowers when we were up at alpine area last month. I thought it would've been too late now. We'll be heading that way to get to hope valley on sunday, so we may just have to do some detour hikes.
Sierraskier, do you also cache? stevens peak?

Hi fishnhockey, havent been to Stevens since the ski season, but I am sure it is raging now as well. *Cache too. *I am just amazed that the show is still going. *Definitely stick to the wetter meadows, the drier meadows are done. *We are still skiing Round Top.

Have fun!

My oldest son (32) has been on the cover of Italian, Swiss, French and US magazines for extreme skiing. He is a film maker and owns his own company and specializes in filming extreme situations for National Geographic, the Discovery Channel (crabbing in the Bearing sea), and private and European enterprises. He just returned from filming in El Salvador; has dodged the rebellion in Nepal; filmed Doctors without boarders in Peru; and last year filmed Tibetan culture on the Silk road, in the midst of the Pakistan/India conflict; and climbed and skied a 20,000 ft mountain in India for an online magazine. And you know what? He likes flowers.

I've been nailing shoes on horses for 36 years and have the broken bones to prove it. I love what I do, but it's not just the horses that keep me inspired. It's what surrounds me everyday when I go to work that keeps me inspired. And taking time to smell the roses is a big part of what keeps me going.

Fishing is like that for me, too. I can go out for three days and not catch one fish and still come home happy because I spent the time surrounded by natural things. And wild flowers are as special as seeing an Elk in velvet.
