When the winter rains fall heavy in California, our beautiful state flower explodes with a super bloom as we pass into spring. We’ve received well above average rainfall in 2019, which has caused a poppy super bloom unlike any in recent memory. This weekend, we made a drive down to Lake Elsinore and enjoyed one of the most beautiful landscapes I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Catalina Island is located 30 miles from coast of Southern California, making it a great option for a spectacular weekend getaway. What many visitors don’t know is that Catalina has a network of trails that cover the 22 mile long island. Here are 20 photos from hikes I’ve done that I hope will make you want to get out and enjoy the trails of Catalina Island!
