A victim of its own success

It's always sad when something that is well meaning and well loved falls victim to itself. Yesterday it was officially announced that Daffodil Hill would be permanently closed.

In 1887, the Ryan Family wanted to give back to the community with a family friendly event, so they started planting daffodil bulbs... lots of them, more than 300,000 at last count. Unfortunately, the crush of increasing traffic, along with two hour waits, has prompted the Amador County and the family to pull the plug.



I don't know what will happened next spring, but it's sad to think it's over.
