This is an image from my trip to the Merced River Canyon in March, 2009. The hillsides were just blanketed with California poppies. There had been a pretty intense fire through this area the year before. Fires sow seeds, and the cycle of nature continues. You can see a few of the burned out trees in the ravine. This had to have been the most incredible display of poppies I have ever seen!
