12. San Bernardino Mountains - Wildflowers 1 (cc)

Just east of the San Gabriel Mountains and part of the same transverse range are the San Bernardino Mountains. Once mined for gold and logged for timber, these mountains today offer all of us another kind of natural treasure: wildflowers. Here our host Martin Hale takes us down a little known forest service road, called IN08, which winds through some amazing wildflower country ending finally at a beautiful little waterfall. After that, our visit to an Aspen grove yields up even more floral delights and spectacular scenery. Flora observed include: Creek Monkeyflower; Woodland Star; California Saxifrage; Blue Dick; Littlefoot Nemophila; Child's Blue-Eyed Mary; Bush Poppy; Poodle Dog Bush; Smoothleaf Yerba Santa Plants; Plummer's Mariposa Lily; Hartweg's Iris; Gilia; Dark Blue Delphinium; Pale-Leaved Serviceberry; Snowdrop Bush; Showy Penstemons. 2010/CC Closed-Captioned JSCA 30 min.
