As we drove on California State Highway 58, I took some pictures out of my window. I started about the time we left Bakersfield after the terrain got a little more interesting.
We saw a freight train going through the Tehachapi Loop on its way up to the pass. We saw a model of this feature on the San Diego Model Railroad Club's layout in the Balboa Park in 2010. It is unique because the track goes through a 360 degree turn and crosses over itself. I managed to get a picture of a train on the loop.
Then I took a few more pictures as we got more and more into desert area.

We had never seen so many windmills so close together before. I can see how birds might get caught in this as there is no where for them to go but over the top!
Finally, I took a few when we arrived at our new campground: Shoshone RV Park in Shoshone, California. I don't think we have to worry about quiet here. We are in the middle of no where. We have no cell phone service and we have no service on the television either. The park has Wifi, however, so at least we can communicate that way. The park is really quite nice and so we are pleased. Tonight about the only noise will probably be coyotes!
