This is 2.5 acres of protected Joshua Tree lands in the Antelope Valley, between the snowy Tehachapi Mountains, and the rolling green foothills of the also-snowy San Gabriel Mountains. My first time out there I saw BOTH ENDS of a rainbow in front of the snowy Tehachapis!! Super dark skies, and a million stars at night. Bring your constellation-finder book.

This is 2.5 acres of protected Joshua Tree lands in the Antelope Valley, between the snowy Tehachapi Mountains, and the rolling green foothills of the also-snowy San Gabriel Mountains. My first time out there I saw BOTH ENDS of a rainbow in front of the snowy Tehachapis!! Super dark skies, and a million stars at night. Bring your constellation-finder book.

It feels like the wild west out here. Think long dirt roads with no people around for miles. The property itself is along a "road" called Avenue C, but I'd be shocked if you encountered anyone driving along there. Except possibly another group of campers.

This land used to be the domain of the Ketanemuk tribe, which I think means People From The East. In the summer they would go up and hunt and get pine nuts in the Tehachapi Mountains, and acorns from the oak trees in the San Gabriels.

About a 20 minute drive from the town of Neenach (pronounced Nee-nack), where there's a general store and a cafe. They make a great breakfast burrito.

About 20 minutes north of the State Poppy Reserve, which blooms in the spring with miles and miles of California poppies.

Also a few minutes away from some wind and solar farms, making clean energy for LA!

Beautiful spot! City lights are very far away and I saw plenty of stars, it was quiet on Friday night but heard some people having target practice maybe a mile or two away on Saturday, sound really carries on the wind out there. Heard coyotes and saw their tracks maybe a half mile from the property, even saw small pup tracks! The Joshua trees were breathtaking, in early November everything was very very dry, so I was careful to keep my fire low. There are no rocks to build up around the fire, but sand worked just fine. Cannot wait to see what it looks like in Spring! Plenty of roads to hike along, didn't see a soul while I was there. The only thing is that people have been disrespectful in the past and there was some trash in the spot I picked, I cleaned up everything I could, but be wary of broken glass if you dig anywhere. I even found an old dead-wood pile that helped keep me warm. All an all, for sure going back.
