This weekend my wife and I drove up to Daffodil Hill in Eastern California. Daffodil Hill is six acres of daffodils (my favorite flower) and it’s only open for a few weeks in the springtime. It’s free — just drive right up, park, and walk around. It looks like this:
And if you get really close to the ground, it looks like this:
If you have a California weekend free between now and the end of April, you might enjoy it. We drove up on Saturday and stayed in nearby Sutter Creek, which is known for its “Gold Rush” history. We stayed at a bed and breakfast called Foxes Inn that was very nice. For food, I can recommend the Jambalaya at the Caffe Via d’Oro in Sutter Creek if you like spicy food. We even found time to squeeze in a trip to a nearby cave called Black Chasm, where we got to see some nice stalactites and other formations:
Growing up in Kentucky I’ve gotten a chance to enjoy several caves, but it was my wife’s first time in a cave. All in all, not a bad way to spend the first weekend of Spring.
