by Central Coast News
This year's wildflower season in California is already experiencing a "superbloom" comparable to the 2017 season, and lovers of nature are flocking to many of the state's well known wildflower sites. As reported widely in the media, "Disneyland" sized crowds have already descended on the natural areas surrounding Lake Elsinore in southern California, creating massive traffic backups of people searching for photo-ops in the superbloom areas.
