  • I will state that I/we went during the Superbloom of last year. The wildflowers were really beautiful, and while I'm sure they bloom each year,during the droughts there will probably be a lot fewer.....  more »

  • The super bloom happening right now at the Carrizo Plain National Monument is absolutely jaw dropping. The flowers literally go for what seems like forever. So lucky to have caught this yesterday and today. Campgrounds are very close to the lake and the visitor center is right before. Definitely a great place for a long drive, a romantic picnic, or some fun outdoor activities. I will definitely come back when I am in the area.
  • Such a wonderful preserve. Take a minute to check it out.
