Hi.

Here are my picks. Hopefully they will become yours too. 

The Carrizo Plains Super Bloom

The Carrizo Plains Super Bloom

During the duration of my time spent at the Carrizo National Monument, I kept thinking to myself, "How in the heck did I not know about this?" The Carrizo Plains Super Bloom was exactly as it states: super. It left me speechless at times. There were blooms that went so far back into the fields, you couldn't see where they ended. I have never seen anything like this before. I stayed in San Luis Obispo for the weekend to make the drive there more accessible. (It would take you 5 hours to get there from San Francisco) From SLO, it only takes an hour and a half. Well without further adieu, here are the blooms! 

They slowly introduce you to the plethora of blooms you are about to see. This is the beginning of the 7-mile drive, right where the blooms started to show.

We walked towards Soda Lake. These majenta blooms were off the path we took.  Here  is where you can find the names of most of the blooms.

Some things to note: get gas before turning on highway 58, bring snacks + water, there are not a lot of hikes its more of driving + pulling over, and lastly the end of the 7-mile drive is not a paved road, so bring your SUV if you have one. 

I stayed at  Granada Hotel  in SLO. It was right in the heart of downtown and was cute as a button.

I unfortunately, didn't have much time to explore SLO that much but did make it to a cute coffee shop called  Scout Coffee.
