Desert Wanderings: 5 May 2018

No Cinco de Mayo for me……..

I did the usual pop run to Mojave this afternoon. I have more important things like the Stanley Cup Playoffs…….

I did take the Trusty Nikon with me…..

Included is a picture of Missus ORPO’s new car that she won at the last home game of the Bakersfield Condors.


I think these may be ex-United airframes.

Desert Evening

Run to get a cople of See Gars at Rite Aid.

Neat Cloud with the setting sun on it.

Rand Mountains and Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains in the distance

Small plane crash sparks rapid brush fire in Calif.

Found this on USA Today. Since my satellite provider only gives me LA as my “local stations” I have to sometimes dig for Kern County stuff. I live in SE Kern County but DirectTV has issues with reading a map.

Just now on Fox News, there was a twenty second bit on the fire……….that’s it. KABC  had a short piece coupled with coverage of the Oak Hills Fire on Cajon Pass south of Victorville.

This is a good link as it has video from KERO 23 in Bakersfield.

The referred to area Northeast of Los Angeles is Blackburn Canyon near Tehachapi. The Missus and I saw a lot of this. We went to Rosamond to pick up a pair of love birds and then to Tehachapi to eat at Denny’s. We wanted breakfast for dinner. Front row seats from the restaurant.
