I am a Botanists born and raised in southern California and I work at at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. I study the flora of southern California, especially the southern Sierra Nevada, Transverse Ranges and the Mojave Desert. I also study monkeyflowers, formerly known as Mimulus in the family Phrymaceae. You can contact me at (nfraga AT rsabg.org).
This is Telescope Peak, Death Valley NP, Inyo County, California. On of my favorite places in the world!
