Check out what visitors of California’s Central Valley have experienced this week. This is all wildflowers blooming 50 miles north of L.A. It looks like the the setting of a 1980s Prince video! #NotPhotoshopped

"The super bloom has migrated north to California's Central Valley and the show is simply indescribable at the Carrizo Plain National Monument. The Valley floor has endless expanses of yellows and purples from coreopsis, tidy tips and phacelia, with smaller patches of dozens of other species. Not to be outdone, the Temblor Range is painted with swaths of orange, yellow and purple like something out of a storybook. I have never seen such a spectacular array of blooms. Ever." Carrizo Plain National Monument is one of the best kept secrets in California. Only a few hours from Los Angeles, the Carrizo Plain offers visitors a rare chance to be alone with nature. Some visitors say you can "hear the silence." The plain is home to diverse communities of wildlife and plant species including several listed as threatened or endangered and is an area culturally important to Native Americans. . Plan your trip today to see wildflowers carpet the valley floor and check out our NEW Snapchat filter while you're there!
