Ben and I drove out to the look at the California Golden Poppies near the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and this is the area in our state where they grow the most. People come from all over the world at this time of year to view and photograph these beautiful wildflowers. In fact we saw several tour buses filled with Oriental people. Cars were parked all along the desert road that lead to the reserve.
