Choice Valley Shots

Many thanks to Brother Bob, who found the wonderful website that allowed me to bring these pictures to you. These photos were taken in 1987 by Marc Hoshovsky for the Department of Fish and Game, to illustrate California flora. Unfortunately, the source URL for these photos, has disappeared, and the larger resolution pictures are no longer available.
