Paint the Town ORANGE

Posted April 26, 2012 by Malina

It’s California Poppy time in the Coloma-Lotus Valley. Whether you’re a wildflower fan or a committed city-dweller who LOVES concrete, I can’t imagine you not being impressed with the show displayed on the sides of Mount Murphy right now. It’s a vibrant sea of golden-orange poppies, and the spectacle will be over soon so book a trip on the Upper “Chili Bar” section of the South Fork of the American River SOON! (You’ll certainly see some poppies and other wildflowers on the Lower “Gorge” section, but by far the best display for poppies is from the vantage point you get on the Chili Bar run).
