Super bloom provides breathtaking views, even from space

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Lake Elsinore officials revealed their crowd control and traffic plans. The city is restricting parking and shutting down the Lake Street off-ramps on both sides of the 15 freeway. This weekend you won’t be able to drive to Walker Canyon.

You’ll have to take a shuttle at the east side of Nichols Road or the outlets at Lake Elsinore.

To help support Lake Elsinore’s traffic control around the Super Bloom, the Pechanga Tribal Council is giving a $100,000 grant.

Elsinore will use the grant for additional law enforcement and protection of the Super Bloom area.

Pechanga Tribal Chairman Mark Macarro says, “this natural wonder is a treasure to be enjoyed, but we need to be responsible about it.”

Last weekend, officials were forced to cut off access to the public because the crowding was unbearable.

If the breathtaking views of the Super Bloom don’t seem to be enough, take a look at the views from space!

The Super Bloom has grown so large at Walker Canyon, the poppy-covered hillsides can be seen all the way from outer space.

Tourists come from all over to take in the sights of the orange poppies in bloom.
