Adventure is where you look for it.

Pyramidal Krag

If anyone is inclined to go up there, please take a good register container and some paper. But with only 13 signatures in the last 25 years, a couple of pages will do.

I think I like this one best, especially the caption:


                                              Mutt and Jeff


I know Cori isn't that small. I just can't figure out how the picture turned out that way.



Nice flowers, too.

Nice photos. Looks a bit like the Rocky Peak/Stoney Point area in Socal. Minus the ticks and poison oak.

"Adventure is where you look for it." Great!

Am pretty sure the flower is Charlotte's Phaecelia. Am told it's only found in the Sierra.

Not that that's particularly unusual. If you read a flower book on the Eastern Sierra, there are several plants which are found in limited areas only. I found that rather surprising, but seems now seems more par for the course in terms of the unusual niche California plays.

Is there a little girl happy to know she has a pretty blue flower named after her?
