I shot this photo in April but now that everything is brown it looks even better to me. From the top of Cuesta Ridge you can see Highway 101 below a field of California Poppies. I was on a bike ride with my son and his friend when we came upon this amazing view. I had to get off my bike and hike a bit to actually get this perspective and the boys of course road on without me. Some times you have got to stop and smell the roses as they say, or in this case hike down and take in the full view. And to think I almost left my camera in the car.
