Tahoe Area Wildflowers: Barker Pass

submitted by Charlie Russell of  California Wildflower Hikes

I drove along the Barker Pass road earlier this week. This is accessed from West Lake Tahoe, south of Tahoe City. There are many flowers in seeps right along the roadside. The best ones are about a mile past the trailhead for the Pacific Crest Trail. A wide variety of flowers if you poke around (particularly in some of the meadows off of the road), including Alpine lilies, several species of bog orchids, Lewis’ monkeyflower, and many more. It is drying out fast, though.
