Photographs by Michael Charters




This trail begins at the top of the San Jacinto Aerial tramway 0.2 miles west of the tramway station and proceeds to Wellman Divide at 9720' and then down to Wellman Cienega. An upside-down V next to the common name indicates a taxon that was new to me when I photographed it on this field trip.
