California Poppies and the Merced River

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Jean Slavin

My husband and I travel to Yosemite a lot. We went this spring and were pleasantly surprised by the show of poppies on the hills. As well as the pink blossoms on the little shrubs. It looked as if the hills were on "fire" with the poppies.

Location: Along highway 140 on the way into Yosemite National Park.
