God's Paint Spill

If you have ever been to this area, the photograph is even more amazing. This was one of the most barren hillsides we have ever seen. This is near the San Andreas Fault line and pretty hot now, maybe truly a shake and bake location. A result of the unusually wet winter in the desert areas of the southwest. An occurrence said to occur about every 20 years or so. Long dormant seeds erupt to color the usually barren landscapes. This almost looks unreal in its beauty! Desert Flowers on the east side of the Carrizo plain, in the Temblor Range (about 50 miles due west of Bakersfield, California).

Someone said it looks like God spilled his paints

This was sent to me email by a friend.....
