We just returned from seeing the rows of daffodils planted on "the hill" outside the small town of Volcano, Ca. We went from Sacramento and Highway 16 moved fairly quickly. Though we were there on a Monday afternoon, there were probably 150 people. Parking, which was free, was across the street from the entrance in a dusty hillside. There is no charge to enter though donations are accepted. The flowers are mostly yellow or white, though we saw one peach colored group. They do have some food for sale, such as hot dogs and sodas, at the entrance. There are picnic tables in that same general area. The paths that are available on the hill are for the most part smooth dirt, but in some places there were rocks. We saw one gentleman who had fallen and reportedly broken his ankle. An EMT arrived to help him out. Others who had walkers were struggling somewhat. I saw several people dressed up in period costumes. They said they were dressed to take pictures of themselves with the daffodils as backdrops. There was a horse and two small donkeys in a fenced area behind the entrance area. We spent about an hour walking about, resting on some of the many benches, and just enjoying the beauty of the flowers. We ate lunch earlier in Sutter Creek at Thomi's restaurant, which provided tasty food.
