On my way up to Yosemite in May 2001, I passed by Gorman, California. Gorman is a small town along the 5 freeway (Golden State Freeway), about an hour north of Glendale, California. (Glendale is a suburb of Los Angeles.) It was May, and usually the wildflowers that cover the hills are gone. Their best months are March or April. But, when I took these pictures, some poppies remained, showing a bit of what their splendor must have been a few months before!

I wasn't the only "latecomer" who decided to stop and take pictures of these poppies! Californians are known for being quite in love with our State flower - we visit the fields of wildflowers that blanket the hills each Spring, and take copious photos. (Well, at least everyone in my family takes copious photos!)
