Underneath all of this heat and rock is life, just waiting for the chance.
Layers and layers of geology, thrust skyward for your viewing pleasure.
The delight of late season wildflowers in the Sierra.
Where rocks and wildflowers beautifully coexist for a few months a year.
The light is different at 10,000 feet, just a hundred yards from the parking lot.
I saw a once-in-a-lifetime flower show. Then it happened again.
