Another traveling day today, about 300 miles, nice drive. We came through Bakersfield, had lunch at Red Robin, then ended up in Boron, CA. This is where 20 Mule Team Borax is mined and produced. We didn't arrive in time to go to the museum today, maybe tomorrow before we check out.
The landscape started out lush in the San Joaquin Valley and has turned into the Mojave Desert. Quite a change. Lots of freight trains on the rails today. We saw miles and miles of almond trees along with tomatoes, oranges and grapes. Also on today's trip was Edwards Air Force Base. You will remember that this is where the Space Shuttle would land if it could not land in Florida. The shuttle flew over our campground many times and the astronauts ate at a local Mexican Restaurant when they were here.
Beautiful day, sunny, windy, 80.
