A walk in the wildflowers: Spring blooms in Nevada County

It’s springtime in Nevada County and the wildflowers along the Buttermilk Bend Trail near the Bridgeport Covered Bridge are in full bloom. Wednesday’s overcast skies and pleasant temperatures made for great day hiking weather. Today’s weather is expected to be similar to Wednesday, with a high of 53 and partly cloudy skies before sunny skies and warmer temperatures head this way for the weekend with highs in the mid- to upper 60s by Saturday and Sunday.
