Can we have nice things? New super bloom rules hope to tame crowds and traffic

LA Times - 03-21


We might find out this weekend when officials impose new rules meant to control rampant crowds going to see this year’s epic super bloom of wildflowers in Lake Elsinore. Officials said several detours and road closures will be in place this weekend to improve the heavy traffic the super bloom is drawing, and shuttles will transport all visitors to the poppy fields at a cost of $10, double last weekend’s fare of $5. The shuttles will run between 6:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. No animals will be allowed on the buses.
