Wind turbines that you can see from Tehachapi.
These all are wild mustangs that live in Oak Creek Canyon. The ones in the pins are waiting the vet to come to give them a clean bill of health. About once a year the residence of the canyon collects a couple of the mustangs to check on the health of the heard.

The Kern County Fire Department Station 12 did the forth of July fireworks in Tehachapi. They did a great job with the show though there as a pause at the beginning. The guys were able to set the fireworks off with out setting a fire which is great. Photographs taken by my dad Jesse May.
On July 3rd Tehachapi had three fries all set within an hour. I heard about it and decided to be a lookie loo. The one pictured above was the biggest of the three. I made it after all the big action was over. You can read more here.
Went down into the LA area to the California Science Center to see the Pompeii Exhibit and the Spaceship Endeavour. It was really cool see both of them but I want to back because there is so much to see there that I only scratched the surface. $10 for parking, the center is free except for the special exhibits like Pompeii.
Went and did Sherman Pass the other day. It is not a very heavily traveled road. The west coast side of the pass is very dry and has some old fire damage. Though it is dry, there are a couple creeks that run down the side of the mountain. The east coast side has a lot of different little meadows and all lot of indigenous trees. At the top of the pass (top photograph) you’re at 9200ft and on a clear day you can see Mt. Whitney which is about 40 miles away.
I started on the west side and on that side before you turn on Sherman Pass Road you are on the road out of Lake Isabelle up the Kern River. There are a lot of campgrounds along the road that you can get down to the Kern River, but those are for another time.
Went to go see Soledad Goats Goat Cheese. He makes some great goat cheese. They are a small goat farm that has a “no kill” policy based out of Mojave, California. They have several dogs and horse that have been rescued. Even a pig, donkey, a cow and some sheep that have also been rescued. Most of the goats and dogs are very friendly. There was one goat named Modesto that insisted that you give him attention.
Julian (one of the owners) loves to have people come by and give you a tour, just call ahead and wear some boots. The goats will chew on things on your person so keep that in mind if you go for a visit. Also when you pull up it does not look like much but trust me, give it a chance and you will be just a surprised as I as.
Soledad Goats Goat Cheese is at several different Farmers market in Southern California. Check their Facebook page to see if they are near you.
I found an article that KCET did on the farm if you have time take a look.
