Tehachaphi Trip 3/12/2004

by Chris Guenzler

Richard and I on our way to Winterail decided to go via Tehachapi since Richard had never gone there. We spent the night before at the Motel 6 in Mojave and headed west on CA 58 the next morning.


We drove to Sand Canyon Road where we exited for this view of the BNSF eastbound curving out of Monolith.
