The Lupines are Blooming!

The Folsom Lake area is beautiful to begin with.  But, right now it’s especially gorgeous.  The grasses are green and the lupine flowers are blooming.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to enjoy several trail runs around the lake, all with quite a view.  I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in such a great area!

I came across a website and learned something about the area.   I thought I should share this information with you.  “Once every 5 – 10 years, the lupines bloom all at once and cover the land by Folsom Lake like rich purple carpets.”  I had no idea that this only happens every 5-10 years.  It won’t last long.  So, for all my local readers, you’ve got to get out and see it for yourself.  (Don’t forget to bring your camera.)  It’s absolutely stunning!!!!

Once every 5 – 10 years, the lupines bloom all at once and cover the land by Folsom Lake like rich purple carpets.FOLSOM LAKE SRA – The last time the lupines did this show for us it was 2008. Park Watch Reporters say this year is possibly even better than 2008.The best place to see the lupines is the Beach Trail. You can access this trail from either Granite Bay Staging or Sterling Pointe Equestrian Staging.The blooms will last about another week, but the lake is rising fast right now and may cover them soon.
