Notes

I found Mineral King last year and fell in love with the valley that a visitor will first see when he arrives. Visit the area in the early morning to experience the calmness and peace of this Seirra gem. I've made the trip two years in a row, and the area never fails to help me rejuvenate me for another year of work (I'm a US Marine and about to deploy to Iraq.) Serious photographers often overlook Mineral King when they visit the Seirra area. The mountain landscapes, wildflowers and animals are worth a visit.
