Your Guide to the California Super Bloom

If you’re up to date on our IG stories, you know that last week we shared pictures that I (Brianna) took on a trip to the California Super bloom. Just like yours probably has, my IG feed had been flooded with amazing pictures of bloggers surrounded by beautiful vibrant hues of green, yellow, purple, red and green flowers with a backdrop of lush green hills. Heaven in a picture, no? We had to see for ourselves. So we drove out on Sunday morning, braved the INTENSE traffic and crows, hiked hands and knees up a mountain and experienced on the most epic super blooms of native wildflowers California has ever seen. This is due to the crazy rainy winter season we had and my friends, the poppies are poppin’. If you have the opportunity, we highly recommend viewing this incredible display of nature while it lasts (prob til May). One word of warning: when you go, we know you want to get the insta shot, but please stick to the trails and don’t crush any of the poppies so that they can be preserved for generations to come.

For those who can make their way down to the Californian coast my best suggestion would be to fly into San Diego Airport, rent a car and head down the I-15N. This route will take you first towards Walker Canyon within an hour (without traffic) around the outskirts Los Angeles to Antelope Valley within another 2 hours and if you feel like road tripping further still Carrizo Plain National Park is another 2 hours from Antelope Valley. Here’s the spots to check out:
