What was life like for a child raised in Yosemite in the 19th century? Meet Florence Hutchings. Born in Yosemite Valley in 1864 to hotel entrepreneur James Mason Hutchings, “Flo” was an adventurous, spirited girl who rebelled against powerful cultural forces pushing her toward femininity. Instead of skirts, sewing and dolls, she embraced trousers, horseback riding and her wild surroundings.

Join Flo, portrayed by Audrey Davis, as she looks back on her brief but full 17-year life; explores her connections with nature and with fellow Valley-dwellers, including mentor John Muir; and reflects on the high peak that bears her name.
