I am planning a trip for 2 weeks, during the end of March. We would like to see the wildflower bloom in Northern California. Any suggestions? I did a search, and turned up Death Valley, Joshua Tree, and Hope Valley. But, I would like to keep it under 500 miles, if possible. Going by hybrid trailer. Thanks...........Dan

We have visited Joshua Tree several times in March and early April. The wild flowers are great.
Hope this link works. Joshua Tree

The Carrizo Plain National Monument has some beautiful wild flowers in the spring. There is a two lane winding highway (not US 99) on the west side of Sequoia that has had some great displays of wild flowers. I think it is SR 245.

There are no guarantees on what will bloom when. One advantage to Joshua Tree is that it has a variety of elevations, so perhaps one will be in bloom and those higher or lower will not. You may, however, have a difficult time finding a campsite in Joshua Tree NP; check the park's webpage for nearby alternatives.

Below is a fairly nice list, again no guarantees. The way things are looking today with the huge storm in Northern and Central CA , all of the flower seeds may wash away.

You can get current reports when the time comes some of the links on that page. Always have plan B in mind.

Thank you, all. Joshua Tree sounds great. We've been to Carrizo Plain; that's not too far to drive. And, thanks for the link.........Dan
