Many people think California is called the Golden State because of the California poppy, but it’s actually because the hills turn a golden yellow in the summer.
This was very obvious yesterday when we took a trip to the Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter yesterday. Whether you eat meat or not is a personal choice and I’m the last person to proselytize about that. But I do want to show you the beautiful golden hills we encountered near the Orland Shelter.
Happy Memorial Day, everybody!
Black Butte Lake, Northern California
