Beware of rattlesnakes within the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. Many wild creatures inhabit this area of high desert and if you spot one, just quietly walk on by. Most snakes will try to avoid you, and a rattle or two is just to remind you to tread carefully. Their bite is bigger than their bark...er hiss, even rattle. Just keep alert...more

Every state in the United States has a state flower. California had many flowers to choose among, but only one said California so clearly. The California State Flower, the golden poppy, with the botanical name given to it , Eschscholtzia Californica, by Adelbert Von Chamisso, a naturalist, in 1816. It became the state flower in 1903, and April 6th...more

Favorite thing: I wanted to share a bit of history of the corporation of Lancaster. For many years back in the 1970's we were just a little farming town. Of course now you would never think that since much of the farming lands are now just vast desert again. When I was in high school, which was Antelope Valley High, our art class instructor Mr. Oliver, nice man, to come up with a design for the new city seal for Lancaster. At the time, I didn't feel like participating, but did have a little input of which represented Lancaster. Two very talented individuals who sat a my table decided to participate. These lovely gals both came up with what symbolizes what Lancaster was all about. The city loved both designs, so they incorporated both. So who were these artists? Jenny Casares design on the left and Thi Tuyet Hong Tran on the right. So if your ever passing by the city hall and see the city seal, please think of them, because they deserve all the credit of such a beautiful seal.
