Poppies Blooming in the Merced River Canyon
Over the last couple of weeks, wildflowers have begun to emerge in the Merced River Canyon. Last week, an explosion of poppies began to fill the canyon, with what some are saying to be the best bloom in years.
Driving Highway 140 into Yosemite National Park will allow you to see the gorgeous wildflowers that are filling the canyon. Along the way, consider stopping to hike Hite's Cove, a 9 mile round-trip trail known for it's wildflowers.
