Carrizo Plain National Monument, CA -The Bloom Was Super Enough!


July 17, 2016 by Deborah W. Trotter

All the talk this spring was of the “super bloom” in Death Valley National Park.  After several years of drought in California, we had a surprisingly wet winter, and it was enough to fuel an explosion of flowers not seen in Death Valley in over a decade.

Officially, the wildflowers that rioted this spring onto the Carrizo Plain in southeastern San Luis Obispo County, California, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, were not a super bloom.  But compared to the “non-bloom” we experienced when my husband and I first visited a few years ago, what we saw this year in late March was pretty spectacular.  See for yourself below:
