Rainfall this winter and spring has been at a record high. The last time it rained that much was in 1997 and I remember one thing that stood out: wildflowers! The best time to see them is mid-March to mid-April.

Here are my favorite spots in the east bay to watch them bloom this spring:

  1.    Mount Diablo State Park
  2.    Sunol Regional Wilderness
  3.    Tilden Park
  4.    Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve
  5.    Lake Chabot Regional Park

But honestly, I think that this year will be spectacular no matter where you will go. So don’t waste any time and plan your viewing now!
