The Poppies are poppin’!!!

The Poppies are Poppin’!!!  This pass weekend we drove to Lake Elsinore to check out the poppies in full bloom!  We couldn’t wait any longer to see these beautiful poppy flowers fields.  Specially after seeing all these awesome poppy flower posts all over Instagram. We decided to make the drive on Sunday morning.

Let me tell you it was crowded.  It was a great experience and the perfect Sunday morning in Poppyland!  I highly recommend you to visit and go early, wear Tennis Shoes if you decide to hike the trail into Walker Canyon.  Otherwise, you can still enjoy the poppies on the side of the road.

Plan that road trip now and visit before they’re gone!  Hey don’t forget the sunscreen you will definitely need it!

The kids will sure love it and Thank You!  Besides there is so many other things to do. The Park has a Nature Center, Trails and a Creek. Enough to keep them busy and active for hours, they won’t want to leave.
