I woke up yesterday morning with an itch to see the wildflowers. So, we rallied the troops and jumped in the car! We decided to head up north, about an hour outside of Los Angeles, to The Antelope Valley which is famous for its Poppy fields. As we entered the valley, the rolling hills, splattered with hues of orange, purple, blue and yellow, surrounded us. It was stunning! Here’s a pic I took of my husband, who is a professional photographer, taking his own pics.
We just sort of moseyed our way down back roads and small 2-lane highways, stopping along the way, whenever it fancied us. One ridge we drove up, we almost got stuck on! The road was unpaved and let’s suffice it to say that we did not have a suitable vehicle for such roads! But, when we finally made it up to the top of the ridge, it was worth it! The view of the poppies against the back drop of the snow-capped mountains was gorgeous!
After such a grueling expedition (ha!) we were of course, famished, so we made it our goal to find a cool little diner. Boy did we hit the Jackpot! Crazy Otto’s Diner in Lancaster has been voted #1 Breakfast in the Antelope Valley for the last 15 years in a row and it did not disappoint!
The service was impeccable and the food was divine, but I would be remiss not to mention the portions were completely exaggerated, so if you find yourself there, please (!) share!
