We were driving on a country road on our way to the poppy reserve.  We had to pull over as all of these sheep came barreling over the hill and flooded in to the street.  A sheepherder and his dogs were right behind them to drive them back up the hill.

The first poppy sighting.

This is at the poppy fields.  Last year all you saw was orange as far as the eye could see.  This year it was beautiful in a more subtle way.

Then we made our way to the Arthur B. Ripley park, a stunning desert preserve.

Compared to past years the poppies were a bust but it was still an incredible day in the Antelope Valley.
