Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

This high country meadow is supported by groundwater that comes from 39" of snow and rain. Water flows from hill-slope aquifers and drains into the Tuolumne River, Budd Creek, Delany Creek and Unicorn Creek. This view above is towards the Pacific Crest with Lembert Dome and Mt. Dana.

The Whitney Survey named the meadows on the Hoffman and Gardiner map 1863-67 that is derived from a tribe of Indians that lived in the present day vicinity of Knights Ferry. Living on the banks of the Tuolumne and Stanislaus rivers, they were called 'Taulamne'.
