a few weeks ago, the mister and i trekked on up to the owens valley to visit Manzanar. on the trek home we took our time exploring that part of california for we do love our state. as luck would have it, we were traveling down the 14 freeway when i realized it maybe, kinda, sorta was still poppy season and the poppy reserves were nearby. so, with a left turn here and a right turn here and a bypass of other people with fancy cameras we finally found a spot to hang out. if only we had thought of it a week or so sooner...there's always next year! check out more pics from the weekend, here.
