like something out of Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory. Have you been to
the San Juan Batista Mission? They
have flowers there, too. You can also
see the San Andreas faultline. Hey, we
all have our faults, right? Take care!

I've never been to that mission, but I will have to check it out! I have seen the fault line of the San Andreas at other points, including running right through the back of this photo, against the hills in the backdrop if I'm not mistaken. I think that is the eastern side of the rift zone. I will have to look that up. Cheers!

My suspicions were correct. Just against those foothills in the back of the shot is the San Andreas fault. Between the light colored hills and the dark ones. Cheers

Rift zones and beautiful flowers! You can't
go wrong with that combination! Now, they
just need to bring the gasoline prices down,
so I can visit CA. Or, I will win the lottery,
whichever happens next. Nice photo, man!!

Yes, they are. They should be equivalent this spring (hoping so) since we've had consistent rain. Another several weeks and it should be busting out. You are close enough to make a nice day trip. I would advise a weekday if possible; much less crowded.

Just went yesterday (Monday-new profile pic). I had planned for Sunday, but had other things come up. It looked like it is about peaking right now, or in the next few days after this storm passes. When I was on the South Loop trail, and up on the lookout, there were still plenty of buds popping (most likely from the last couple of storms and warm weather). A great place to hike around (weekdays are nicer-much less crowded)
