Exploring the Poppies

California has no shortage of beautiful places. One of them specifically being the California Poppies. Over the years I have lived in California I have never seen many up close. 2 years ago Southern California got a surge of rain and created a super bloom of these poppies all over. Fast forward to the past few month and the same thing has happened! Unfortunately 2 years ago I was not able to see the beautiful flowers in person, and honestly tried to avoid them because everyone was going to see them so there were too many people for my liking. This year I took advantage of the super bloom right when it happened and was able to sneak in a few hikes amongst these beautiful flowers before the crowds came. It was so worth it, such a beautiful sight, hopefully when things calm down I can visit this place again.
