The Inyo Mountains #Wilderness in eastern #California encompasses a large portion of the Inyo Mountains, which rise to 11,000 feet. These #mountains have maintained most of their pristine character due to the sheer ruggedness of the terrain. Evidence of historic and prehistoric man's use of the area has been found. Vegetation includes creosote, shadscale scrub, big sagebrush, lush riparian areas in most of the #canyons on the eastern slope and pinyon-juniper #woodland, bristlecone and limber pine on the higher reaches. #Wildlife include #desert bighorn #sheep and the Inyo Mountain salamander. #landscape #nature #instagood #photooftheday
