Initial assessment in proj calif[edit]

stub by dent of length. Importance stems from very visible range of mountains separating two very high name recognition and visited valleys: Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley. Anlace 20:02, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Typo in title[edit]

It's Mayacamas, not "Mayacmas". How do we correct the typo in the title of this article? --Mukrkrgsj 08:34, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

  • i have corrected this. i am glad i wasnt the article creator, but should have caught this earlier. the other spelling is an alternative spelling but not as common. thanks mukrkrgs. Anlace 14:34, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

Typo in title again[edit]

The USGS has the range named "Mayacmas" and my understanding is that this name should be the authoritative one. I have not changed the article title or in-text references, but I would like someone with more knowledge about naming conventions to look at this. Yerrik 26 February 2014

Prehistoric vegetation[edit]

Regarding the point about vegetation differences in prehistoric times: The Mayacama Mountains are probably only a few million years old (related to fault activity on San Andreas family of faults). I am guessing that you meant to say ten thousand years ago, not ten million. There should have been vegetation differences as recently as 10,000 ybp due to climate changes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.51.154.217 (talk) 19:28, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
