Trail from White Wolf to Lukens Lake

A monarch butterfly was dangling upside down from one of the few remaining Jeffrey Shooting Star flowers along the trail to Lukens Lake. A few others were spotted over the next couple of days flying around the White Wolf area.

Sierra Sweet Bay

In Wawona and downstream, the South Fork Merced River provides habitat for a rare plant, the Sierra sweet bay (Myrica hartwegii). This special status shrub is found in only five Sierra Nevada counties. In Yosemite, it occurs exclusively on sand bars and river banks along the South Fork Merced River downstream from Wawona and on Big Creek.
