Mokelumne Wilderness

After church on Sunday, Bruce and I took a hike in my favorite wilderness area called Mokelumne Wilderness. Our goal was Winnemucca Lake, through the most wonderful wildflowers. This area is known for its profusion of flowers and we were not disappointed.

This is Round Top Mountain and is about 10,400ft. high.

Our first stop was Frog Lake. Lake of perpetual wind.

We get closer to Round Top Mountain

Surrounded by flowers

Lupine, Indian Paintbrush, Asters, Mountain Phlox, Heather, wild Irises.

Bruce's favorite part of a hike
