Alpine Flowers on Mammoth Mountain

Alpine Flowers on Mammoth Mountain

So here we are, on top of Mammoth Mountain in the Eastern Sierras.  Altitude is about 11,000 feet.  And no, we did not climb that high – we are lowland dwellers at 800 feet, and not at all climatized to such height!  – we took the gondola.  Getting short of breath was a really great excuse to look around and take in the scenery, from beautiful flowers and colorful rocks, to marveling at the mountain ranges beyond mountain ranges beyond mountain ranges.  You can see them on the horizon!  Whew!
