The Tuolumne River Canyon is well known for its colorful spring wildflower displays. Among the flowers are bright blue lupines, yellow seep-spring monkeyflowers, pink shooting stars, blue gilia, and white globe lilies. At times, the steep slopes of the canyon are ablaze with California poppies, fiddlenecks, and goldfields. Wildlife is also abundant along the river. Visitors might see nesting golden eagles, wintering bald eagles, California quail, coyotes, black-tailed jack rabbits, mule deer and possibly river otters and bobcats as well.
