Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve

On Sunday I visited the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. I’ve never seen so many poppies before in my life! It was extremely windy that day, but it was nice to walk on the trails. The paths seemed to go on forever, so although you must pay $10 for parking, it’s quite worth it if you enjoy the outdoors and being surrounded by a bunch of pretty flowers on a clear Spring day. If you do not desire to pay for anything, Rafael and I did notice a lot of people pulling over the side of the road and taking photos or enjoying the scenery. I’m really glad I visited the reserve though, because I always enjoy a nice little hike. A little less wind would have been nice, but it was a fun day regardless. There were a lot more people there then I expected. The wild flowers start to bloom from mid-March to mid-May, but peak season is in mid-April. All poppies grow naturally, and park hours are from sunrise to sunset.

If you love nature and you enjoy walking or hiking, you must pay a visit to the poppy reserves! It’s a bit far, depending on where in California you are coming from, but road trips are always fun.
