Antelope Valley Tour Trip Report – Liberty Field / US Tire Track
27 Aug 05
Road Trip!!! A beautiful, sunny (hot) Saturday in late August, and nothing to do just cried out for a road trip. So, on the road we went. This time we didn’t have to go far for the amazing and the missing. The Antelope Valley still seems to be a rich treasure trove of faded glories and hidden wonders.
We made our way to Sierra Highway and turned north. Sierra was once the main road from northern Los Angeles to Mojave and points further on. Now it’s a back way and now relegated to local traffic and adventurous people like me. Before getting to our first stop, I spied a huge field completely overgrown with sunflowers. Although it was 107 that day and we haven’t seen rain in months, the flowers didn’t care. They were 6 to 8 feet in height and stretched hundreds of yards into the desert.( Collapse )
