Artist rendering of Tabuce or Maggie "Taboose" Howard, Yosemite-Mono Lake Paiute in Yosemite Valley with a wono basket and winnowing tray. These baskets were often used to pick pine nuts and winnow them. The drawing was done by Yosemite-Mono Lake Paiute Roger Salas. The picture on the right is of a Pinon tree taken in Hetch Hetchy Valley in 1937. The tree is very large and hundreds of years old.

In 1909, Sierra Club hikers find Pinon trees in Hetch Hetchy. Later on in years others continue to find more Pinon trees. In 1936 Yosemite geologist Francois Matthes discovers a whole orchard of Pinon trees at Hetch Hetchy.

I have not gone to that area, but would like to see if they are still there.

Anyone seen the trees?
