There's Gold in. . .on. . .

This is the current view if you're heading East from Tehachapi on Highway 58. The hills look for all the world as though somebody decided yellow was the chalk of the day and proceded to color in very random spots with it. . . .Or not so random, perhaps. I pulled off the highway and drove out towards Sand Canyon to get another angle and realized that all of the yellow patches are on south(ish) facing slopes.
Like this one.

I never did get close enough to see what flowers were for certain, but I am pretty sure they were buttercups.
