Carizzo Plains


The wild flowers at the Carrizo plain is going off! This is a really easy going trip, all the roads where in really good condition and freasly graded.

I would like to leave friday night if possible. We would meet in Ventura at location TBD at 7pm and travel up the 33 and arrive in the monument at night. All the roads are not technical at all( I stopped counting how many prius I saw). Arriving at night would be fun and we should get a good camp spot. If leaving Friday doesnt work we can ether leave saturday morning early of you can meet up with us out there. Again the roads are really easy, 2wd rigs will be fine out here. Depending on the size of the group I will chose our intended camp spot and post up here with a location. 

There are two main camp sights that fill up fast. Even though they have bathrooms I would like to stay away from them. There are plunty of remote camping spots that look really promising!

Once in the monument Saturday/Sunday we can drive around looking at the wild flowers, checking out the San Andreas Fault at Wallace Creek, Soda Lake, and adventure in the Caliente/Temblors range. 

As of 3/18-3/19 there where many patches of yellow flowers. Still a lot that are buds so the next couple of weeks its going to take off!
