Bridgeport Spring Wildflower Walk

Jackie and John were up Auburn way last weekend for their annual spring wildflower walk. I've had to listen to Jackie talk about this wonderful walk every since she found out we were moving to Auburn. Not only are the little flowers beautiful but the park docents label the blooms for identification and give guided tours.

Their walk starts at the Bridgeport Covered Bridge, the longest single span covered bridge in the country. Take the Buttermilk trail, across the road from the visitor's center.

As some of you may remember, the Bridgeport Covered Bridge (map) is one of the first places Sharon and I when when we were first dating. It is up near Dick and Earin's place in Penn Valley. A 35 mile one hour drive from home via Grass Valley.
