The coronavirus pandemic is canceling pretty much everything, but the one thing it can’t cancel is good ol’ nature.
In southern California, spring is defined by music festivals and wildflower blooms. The festivals might be postponed, but flowers are still very much in session. Although not a super bloom this year, in Walker Canyon (southeast of Los Angeles) and in Antelope Valley (north of LA), the hillsides are blanketed by a sea of bright orange poppies. And even though you can’t visit them this year, the California Department of Parks and Recreation has set up a live cam so you can have a peek at the vibrant blossoms.
