With the weekend rain behind us, get outside to see California lilacs blooming across northern San Diego County.

What to expect: Hike the mile-long South Lake Park trail to see brilliant purple flowers cover the landscape, as seen in this recent photo by local photographer Vishwas Lokesh.

Pro tip: "Go 30 minutes before sunset or after sunrise for that perfect purple color," according to Lokesh.
