There aren't really words for this stark beauty. We left home this morning bright & early but, of course, had several stops to make. We had a long, dull, hot drive down I-5. (Do I need to mention that the AC isn't working?)
When we turned onto 58 in Bakersfield, things started getting better. It was a hell of a grade into Tehachipi but #708 did beautifully! When we started seeing Yucca and then Joshua Trees, I was so happy! Plus, the elevation helped cool things down.
This might be our longest day of driving but getting out if California always takes a while. We are spending the night in Calico Ghost Town.
