The elevation was increasing as we moved into the Sierra Nevada foothills from the Kern River Oilfield. I turned the radio to a classic country station and belted out tunes with Willie, David Allen Coe, Charlie Rich, and many others.
We came across an historic landmark or two. Here's the 1st one that looks to be used for rifle practice. I don't know what the landmarks look like anywhere else; but in Kern County I notice that a stone monument is erected with a brass plaque affixed. Sadly, some plaques have been vandalized or even removed. Punks!
