2nd part of my vacation - Carrizo Plain

In what has become a yearly springtime ritual (well, almost, I missed 2004 and 2007) I visited Carrizo Plain National Monument. I first went in 2003 and was impressed with this rural beautiful area of California that looked more like Wyoming, only with flowers. Lots of flowers. Billions. If you go they'll knock your socks off. Then you can walk barefoot through the vast grasslands and really get to know Carrizo. I also recommend rolling on the ground with the poppies. Get down to their level and you'll get the best photographs. Just be careful not to squish them!

This year I met 4wheelbob (I originally met him at Carrizo Plain in 2005 and we met each other's spouses out there in 2006), hikerchick395 and her hubby Greg, Orygawn, Rebecca D and her husband and two kids and two good friends, and 2heeldrive out there for a few days of exploring and camping. Several of us arrived on Friday with more arriving Saturday. On Sunday everyone left but me, but that was okay. It was Easter and it was my birthday and I spent the day with my wildflowers

Lots more photos here http://www.tarol.com/carrizo3.html
