The flowers will continue to bloom for another couple of weeks. According to the monument's website, mid-March to mid-April is usually the best time the view the wildflowers, and usually offers visitors a rare chance to be alone with nature.

Sister Kate lights a joint at Sisters of the Valley near Merced, #California on Tuesday. The self-ordained "weed nuns" are on a mission to heal and empower women with their #cannabis products.
.
The sisterhood stresses that its seven members, despite the moniker, do not belong to any order of the Catholic Church. They consider their Holy Trinity to be the #marijuana plant, specifically hemp.
.
Sister Kate, whose real name is Christine Meeusen, adopted the nun persona after she took part in an Occupy Wall Street protest in 2011 dressed as a Catholic nun, a look that led her to be known by protesters as "Sister Occupy."
.
"We've gotten a few hate calls but, by and far, the Catholics understand what we're doing," she said.
