Los Angeles County, in the high desert, has a California Golden Poppy Reserve near Lancaster. Normally, the reserve is open desert, but in the spring the arid desert erupts in golden color. I’ve never been to the poppy reserve during the season, though I certainly have been in the area a hunderd times. I did go for a spring scooter ride a few years ago and saw fields of pretty poppies and other colorful flowers. I don’t know if we’ll ever be in California in March, but if we are we’ll have to check this out.
I zoomed in on this pic to make sure it was a Harley Davidson and not an Indian.
Notice the US-40/CA-89 highway markers on the right side of the picture. I’d love to have either one.
