From Spencer Westbook's introduction: The purpose of my listing the trips below is to share with the reader some of my favorite trips that I have been enjoying for more than 25 years. My primary interest is discovering and photographing California's native plants and flowers and as such, I have been in some very remote areas of our beautiful state. This list comprises my "hot spots locations", that is, locations where I have found beautiful landscapes and displays of flowers often away from crowds or heavily traveled highways.
This guide contains detailed information about 28 locations to view wild flowers. Trips covered include Yosemite, Central Coast and Coast Range, Southern Sierras, Southern San Joaquin Valley, Cuyama and Carrizo Plain, Antelope Valley and the Mojave Desert.
