Sonora Pass Wildflowers 7/21/17

We drove over Sonora Pass as we were told Yosemite and Groveland were both very smokey.


The drive over Sonora Pass is very scenic. It included snowy mountain landscapes and many species of wildflowers in bloom. The best blooms were in the higher elevations over 8000 feet. Today’s iPhone photos
