From Needles we drove to US Hwy 58 west to US Hwy 99 then north to Pixley.
The traveling was terrific, scenic high desert countryside lovely to watch. We switch drivers every 2 hours. After having lunch and refueling in Mojave it was over the hill and down the famous Tehachapi grade. Both of us enjoy watching the scenery pass by, the passenger gets to find interesting locations on the big map book which is always open. We look for red letter locations, mountain range names, nearby places of interest. Once again, no pictures, we're in a hurry .
