Yosemite’s Sky Islands

Yosemite’s Sky Islands!!!

The video is a fine example of the high plateaus in the Sierra Nevada. It’s also a great source to identify what wildflowers we are shooting way up in the high country!!

If you haven’t experienced one of the high plateaus, you can find them with a topo map or by using Google Earth to place your viewpoint on top of some of the highest peaks to look down on the plateaus. Look for easy access places such as the Saddlebag Lake area and near the west entrance of Yosemite.

Sky Pilots growing in talous

You won’t find anything growing higher then a sky pilot!
