Yes, Onion Valley is just over or at 9,000 (9,200'?). The flower displayes there are fantastic, especially the last 1/4 mile of the road on the right before the trailhead.
And there's that trail to Golden Trout Lakes, and the lakes to the north that have great wildflower displayes though te trails are little steep).
But there's so many people.
