Poppies ~ Beautiful Poppies
While we ate our lunch on Saturday, Charlie suggested that we go for our drive after we got done eating instead of Sunday like we had initially planned. At first, I was a little hesitant because I didn't think we would have enough time to enjoy ourselves and would have been too rushed. He talked me into it and I was so glad that he did! When we woke up Sunday morning, the temperature was cooler and it was also windy.
Charlie grabbed the ice chest and threw in a couple of bottled water's for each of us and off we went! It was a gorgeous day!
The canyon looked as if someone poured an orange crush soda over it and the liquid flowed down the hills. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was! The view was like that for at least five miles. At one point I heard myself saying out loud in the voice of the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz, "Poppies, beautiful poppies."
It truly took your breath away!
