If you're in the White Wolf area and see a flower in bloom along the trail that we don't have listed, we would love to have your help in keeping our list as complete as possible. A great way to let us know of your find is to talk to a White Wolf ranger at one of our free ranger-guided programs listed in the Yosemite Guide newspaper. If you're able to take a picture and/or describe where you saw it, that is always helpful.

El Portal Boulder Bar

At the east end of El Portal, just west of Yosemite National Park’s boundary, changing river gradients, glacial history, and powerful floods have created a boulder bar with boulders much larger than typically found in such deposits. This is no ordinary boulder bar, however, for it contains massive boulders over a meter in diameter and weighing many tons.
