 “The time to go to the Bald Hills to see the lupines blooming is right now,” said Jon Parmentier, who took this photo this week. 

Located east of Orick in the Redwood Creek watershed, the area is accessible from Bald Hills Road, which leaves Highway 101 just north of Orick. The larger prairies along the road start about 10 miles east of Highway 101.
