Yosemite Wildflowers 5/27/17

report and photos by Spencer Westbrook

I returned from the Yosemite area on Saturday after finding an amazing display of wildflowers in the area. I avoided the Valley other than a quick drive through to see the falls, the Valley being jammed with buses, RV’s, cars and people, this on Wednesday, 5/24, and headed to my old stomping grounds along Evergreen Road where I camped at Diamond O campground, which had been trashed by Forest Service logging contractors, another story.
The flower display Evergreen Rd was as good I have ever seen it, photographing here for almost 30 years. In particular were the displays of iris which were in full bloom and found by the hundreds. The meadows were packed with a beautiful display of meadow foam with blue eye grass, mule ears, delphinium, and others mixed in.
Flowers along Hetch Hetchy Rd were excellent as well, if you can find a place to park and walk along the road.
The falls at Hetch Hetchy were in full flow, Wapama Falls being as big as I have ever seen it, and way less crowded that the Valley.
