Bloom on!

The legend of Daffodil Hill is a long one: The pioneer McLaughlin family began planting bulbs here in the 1880s, and descendants have continued the tradition. The hill’s 300,000 bulbs normally flower mid-March through mid-April, and they draw crowds, especially on weekends. 18310 Rams Horn Grade Rd., near Volcano; 209/296-7048 (call ahead).
