hidden valley of wildflowers


tehachapi foothills 2001

One of my favorite secret spots is this hidden valley. One has to hike over a steep incline to come to this dramatic view. Carrying heavy gear at 4500 feet elevation makes for an honest day's work. One season I counted over 50 types of wild flowers nestled in here.

Several artesian springs flow out of these mountains collecting in small pools. For another angle of this valley see Blue Hills and Valley of Wildflowers.
