Fresno County Blossom Trail



Road Trip!

I love driving to Fresno. It is a beautiful drive all year 'round, and especially in the spring.

This past weekend I drove the Fresno County Blossom Trail, and it was SO worth it. Just to be out in the country, away from city life for a few hours was heavenly, and to see all the fruit trees in bloom just made it that much sweeter. And to top it all off, I got to share it with my mom. She's recouperating from surgery, so it was nice to get her out for some fresh air and "us" time.



You still have about two or three weeks to catch it in all its glory if you happen up that direction. If not, don't worry. There's still time to catch the Orange Harvest Festival on April 5th!





So many white blossoms it looks like snow!



Kings RiverA different kind of blossom. This friendly guy came right over to say hi

It was a fabulous trip, and will always be one of my fondest memories.

Happy Trails!

You know, that's what I used to think, too. I've since done some exploring and found that there are a lot of interesting and beautiful sights to behold in Fresno.

You've inspired me. I have to go through my Fresno pictures and post some different sites.

Thank you!
