Yosemite Wildflower Photo Journal

Although Yosemite does not really get carpeted with flowers, I got to see plenty scattered around, which accentuated the beauty of the meadows and riverbanks. I came back with a collection of flowers that I had never seen before. I took these pictures for my records and learning, so I'm parking them here even if some are not post worthy!

Wow - this is such an extensive list. Shilpa - your blog is soon going to become the reference point for wildflowers!

Mountian Misery - what a sad name for such a lovely bloom.

I have many more wildflower pictures to post. Need to sort them out first.

We did a hike in Yosemite and the narrow trail ran in the middle of a huge meadow covered with these pretty flowers,as far as the eye could see.
It gets its name because of its medicinal smell and sticky resin.
