Poppies & Wildflowers

California Mountains in Bloom

Posted on March 16, 2017

After a very wet winter, the local mountains are covered in bright wildflowers. These "California poppies" (as we grew up calling them), are clearly visible from the air. And they're everywhere!! On my way back from Lake Elsinore (seen in the top photo), the local mountains are glowing with orange, yellow and just a hint of purple. Very, very pretty!!

For more information on where to see the wildflowers, visit the Forestry Service's website:
