The awe-inspiring domes, spires, and crags of the Dome Land Wilderness, rising out of a dark green conifer forest, occupy the southern end of the Kern Plateau area. This short trip ascends a forested divide, then leads down to Manter Meadow, the largest meadow in the wilderness, and is encircled by a shady forest of pine and fir. North of Manter Meadow rises a profusion of granodiorite spires, and to the south are Miranda and Church Domes, two of the Dome Land’s most prominent bedrock peaks. Cattle have been grazed here for generations, and you may see a herd grazing in Manter Meadow, usually from about July through September.
