The article "In Pursuit of Wildness: Flowers along Dry Creek" by Robert Griego was originally published on the "RoadRUNNER Touring & Travel" magazine website on 3/29/2019.
Just last week, my wife Denise and I traveled to Anza-Borrego State Park to capture the wildflower “super bloom.” The desert was transformed into a sea of color. A detailed account of this area and this incredible wildflower phenomenon will be featured in a future issue of RoadRUNNER in my In Pursuit of Wildness column, so stay tuned. In the meantime, Dry Creek is shining and I’m already seeing other motorcycle riders enjoying the warm sunny day.
Dry Creek Road is a mere 15 miles from our home in Three Rivers and is a favorite for local and visiting riders alike. If you continue on this country road, you’ll eventually arrive at Kings Canyon National Park. But today, we stop immediately at the first sight of bright California poppies. Dry Creek has an abundance of water from the recent rains.
I’m going to be short on the words today, allowing the wildflowers to talk.
