California

"The Great Central Plain of California, during the months of March, April, and May, was one smooth, continuous bed of honey-bloom, so marvelously rich that, in walking from one end of it to the other, a distance of more than 400 miles, your foot would press about a hundred flowers at every step. Mints, gilias, nemophilas, castilleias, and innumerable compositæ were so crowded together that, had ninety-nine percent of them been taken away, the plain would still have seemed extravagantly flowery." 

- JOHN MUIR, THE BEE PASTURES OF CALIFORNIA (1894)
