Lake Elsinore Wildflowers 3/4/19

The San Francisco Chronicle  reports are the current poppy bloom at Lake Elsinore. Although the article mentions the need to stay on the paths and not go in the flowers for selfies, the first photo shows someone jumping in a field of flowers. Here are a few excerpts from their article

California poppies are exploding in the Gavilan Hills flanking the eastern boundary of Lake Elsinore, inspiring thousands to descend on the region an hour’s drive east of Los Angeles.

In recent days, traffic along Interstate 15, which passes through the Riverside County town, has often come to a standstill with people wanting to photograph the eye-popping floral display

Photos of the display are flooding social media, and Reinig says the county has posted signage encouraging shutterbugs to tread lightly around the flowers.

“People love to get out there and get their Instagram photos,” he says. “They’ll plop themselves in the middle and trample the flowers. People need to stay on the path.”
