'Poppy Apocalypse' Crowds Descended Upon California City
Some call it a poppy "super bloom." But the mayor of Lake Elsinore, California, calls it a "Poppy Apocalypse." The city had to close Walker Canyon on Sunday due to an influx of tourists.
It's open now.
The city is apparently overrun with "Disneyland sized crowds" of people looking to take pictures in the fields.
Like all Instagram photo opportunities, it started out innocuous enough.
In early March, the Anza-Borrego in Southern California experienced a super bloom of poppies.
