On this year's trip to Yosemite we saw lots of wildflowers, of more varieties than I think I have ever seen before. And I saw flowers that I have never seen except in books. The "flower show" was especially good in Hetch Hetchy Valley and around the Wawona Meadow - it was in the woods just along the periphery of the Wawona Meadow that I saw a Lady's Slipper Orchid for the first time.
I don't necessarily believe that this is the best way to showcase the pictures, but it's what I've come up with so far. They are in mostly alphabetical order...I hope you will enjoy them.
