From Marin, CA I drove to Los Angeles, using Highway 46 to get to Interstate 5. Between the town of Paso Robles and the entrance to Interstate 5, there were many patches with millions of wildflowers on the green hills along the way. There were swaths of yellow, orange, blue, and purple, at times with several colors laid out side by side as if the mountain was a giant quilt.

This last photo was taken at the Pinnacles National Park, the newest national park located off Highway146 30 miles south of Hollister, CA.
