No Poppy Selfies This Year But You Can Watch Via Livestream
California's iconic orange poppies are now in bloom, but this year's stay-at-home orders won't allow for a run through their colorful fields. And yes, that rule applies to influencers, too.
In northern Los Angles County, the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve is closed to the public. And in Riverside County, visitors are being steered away from the Walker Canyon poppy fields in Lake Elsinore.
Apparently though, that's not enough to deter some people. According to ABC 7, California State Parks had to put up roadblocks in Lancaster near Antelope Valley to stop incoming traffic.
But, good news! You can still see the flowers remotely, from the comfort of your own (hopefully air-conditioned) home, without ruining it for everyone.
Antelope Valley has "a 360-degree camera out in the bloom so people can see the three different views of the reserve -- east, middle and west," said Lori Wear, from California State Parks.
