Yes, this grove is right off Mosquito Ridge Road, which is the road that goes to French Meadows Reservoir. Such a beautiful area...

I am very much interested in the natural range limits, both latituden'ally and elevational. Are there something like 56 natural groves? Not counting the scrubbers by Fresno. Nice picture by the way, interesting subject. i am from the Seattle area and can't place the landmarks you listed--French Meadows, Foresthill Divide. Maybe you can help.
