Sierra Word Associations

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Virgina Lake? Would have bet it was going to be P, HB, or M Lake! :\
Flowers, Whitesides Meadow has fields of Lupine and Mules Ears, and can be one of the
best shows for wildflowers gardens in the Sierra.
