Tuesday March 26th we went to the Poppy Reserve in the Antelope Valley. It's a little over a two hours drive from our house. It was wonderful. We stopped and had lunch on our way home.
This is a State Park and was very well organized. This state park has poppy blossoms every year. It's location is just the perfect environment for the poppies to grow. Being a State Park there was a fee and I think we waited in line for about 20 minutes to get in the park.
The other area with poppies, one that was close to our house, are a rare sight this year because of the extreme amount of rain we had. People were parking on the freeway and walking, lines went on forever so we decided to drive to the Poppy Reserve.
These fields with the yellow flowers
were miles away from us.
Every direction we looked there were poppies. There were paths everywhere but we just walked one of them a short way because of the altitude and climb which is difficult for me. You could walk miles of pathways so we certainly didn't see all the poppies but it was an amazing sight.
