Michael and I left Callie sleeping in the RV and drove over to Julian to check out the wildflowers. It is springtime in the mountains and there are wildflowers everywhere. What a difference compared to the desert. The desert has its own stark beauty, but nothing compares to a field of California Poppies. It is illegal to pick them, they grow wild in meadows and alongside roadways and are also called- Cups of Gold. I can see why!
