Robert,

Yes of course, it is best that automobile (we call them bobil "living-car") campers use sites the sites intended for them, but I was more thinking of tenting.

Here I can put up a tent wherever I want except on cropland and in gardens but it has to be at least 200m away from a house.

Here in California what applies to automobiles also applies to tenting. One cannot camp anywhere with a tent except for wilderness areas (with a few exceptions). In California even tent campers are now very disrespectful of private property. This was not always the case, but things have changed.

Lots of great plants up there, fun to see at any season, but spring must be nice for sure- though I imagine that is tricky as some areas would be in full growth with others under snow, still.

Cohan,

I rarely get down to Sonora Pass these days. Yes, the wildflowers put on a tremendous show in the spring. And, yes the winter snow can be extremely deep and linger for months on the north facing slopes. The snowmelt species are quite interesting and are of a little different mix than those that I routinely see in the Crystal Range.
