This weekend, I had planned to blog about our Epic Sister Adventure in Joshua Tree National Park.
But then spring came early in the San Joaquín Valley. The temperatures reached the 70s, just as the beautiful pink blossoms were appearing on the region’s fruit and nut trees.
So instead of investing time in this blog, we hit the Fresno County Blossom Trail.
We drove toward Sanger on Highway 180 East, which is lined with patches of brilliant yellow daisies and orange poppies. The pink blossoms on the trees and the grapevines contrasted magnificently with the snow-capped Sierras, which we could actually see.
We had lunch at the new School House Restaurant & Tavern, which features pretty good food and great ambience. Then we continued just a minute down the road to Cedar View Winery, where we picked up our next shipment of wine.
And sipped Zinfandel, while taking in the beauty of the day, the landscape, love, and life.
