This photo was taken at Gorman, CA. According to the California Wildflower Hotsheet (See link at right.) Gorman is beautifully in bloom this year, right now. The area may be a few days past peak, but compared to most places, it's unforgettable. Easterners, still with cold and mud, can only dream about such a magnificent display--one of the grandest natural wildflower blooms on earth.
