There are plenty of places to catch the floral carpeting that is the super bloom (even spots you may not have realized). That is, at least, until the flowers die, and according to our sources it will all be over "soon." Beauty doesn't last forever, not even if you Instagram it.

While the bursts of color coming out of the desert ground are delightful from whatever height you see them, what about from way up above, or even just inches above the ground? Check out these drone videos that will give you a new perspective, showing the blooms at Anza Borrego, Walker Canyon, and Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. They're the same exact amount of soothing as any Enya video.
