Founders Ridge
2 bedrock mortars and 1 broken mortar
Elevation 2498 ft.

We’ve walked along this ridge a bunch of times, but we weren’t checking out the rocks with Jeff’s sharp eyes.

Looking east with the main mortar rock in the foreground. We could see the snow-capped Sierra in the distance. Unfortunately, this picture didn’t capture the view.


These are pot-shaped mortars–relatively straight sides with flat bottoms.
