Poppies on the Stanislaus
Knights Ferry Recreaction Area
This is a photograph from Knight's Ferry Recreation Area in the stunning 2014 spring wildflower bloom. Knight's Ferry is a small historic town on the shores of the Stanislaus River, about a two hour drive due east of San Francisco. The recreation area has trails that follow shores of the Stanislaus upstream, in the Goodwin Canyon direction. What a beautiful area! This was my first time exploring the Stanislaus, and I must say I was taken aback by its beauty. The dominant flowers during my visit were poppies and lupine, with many others sprinkled in to lesser degrees.
