Happy Easter Sunday, everyone! I am currently blogging in Dumaguete City, Philippines and I ALMOST forgot that today is my turn to post!
So, come and join me on a trip to… Tejon Ranch! Tejon Ranch is actually a company and one of the largest private landowners in California. According to Wikipedia, the company now owns over 270,000 acres (1,093 km2) in the southern San Joaquin Valley, Tehachapi Mountains, and Antelope Valley. That is about 2 and a half hours from home.
We went on a guided tour into one part of the Tejon Ranch guided by the Tejon Ranch Conservancy. Since this land is private property, no one is allowed to enter unless you are on a guided tour courtesy of the Tejon Ranch Conservancy. You also have to pre-register before going and no walk-ins are allowed. Oh, and the best thing, the tour is FREE!
We stayed for about an hour and a half in the fields and I was able to get photos of a valley full of wildflowers!
Please note, because California is almost always in a perpetual drought, there are hardly any wildflowers! We were lucky that in the last few days, we had rain! Not much, mind you, but enough for the wildflowers to grow! Per our guide, these wildflowers would be gone by next week, so this weekend was the only guided tours available. Sorry, guys!
Wildflowers: Fiddlesticks, Poppies, and that unknown white flower
And a bonus, the secret life of bees!
How did you spend your Easter Sunday? Did you hunt for eggs? Also, does anybody wonder why Easter eggs are carried by Easter bunnies when bunnies don’t lay eggs?
Also, if anybody else is wondering. Today, where I’m currently blogging at, is April Fools Day! *wink
