Bighorn Mountain Wilderness
The Bighorn Mountain Wilderness is on the eastern flank of the San Bernardino National Forest in Southern California. This beautiful 38,000 acre preserve holds rugged rocky mountains and hidden springs. Among the rare "carbonate plant habitats" here, you can find very endangered species such as San Bernardino Mountains bladderpod, Cushenbury milk-vetch, Cushenbury buckwheat, and Cushenbury oxytheca, as well as Parish's daisy.
This is another elevational transition zone, consisting of Mojave species from the mid-elevation desert all the way up to Jeffrey Pines at over 7000 ft.
