Mount Williamson

Mount Williamson, at 14,379 ft (4,383 m), is the second highest mountain in both the Sierra Nevada range and the state of California. It is also the sixth highest peak in the contiguous United States. Mount Williamson is in the California Bighorn Sheep Zoological Area and these rare animals can often be seen on the lower slopes during the winter when heavy snows drive the sheep down from their summer grazing areas.
