Tehachapi Pass

Card no 331 – Richard O.

The Union Pacific trains use the Tehachapi Pass across the Sierra Nevada.  Tehachapi Pass (elevation about 4,000 feet (1,219 m)) is a mountain pass crossing the Tehachapi Mountains in Kern County, California in the United States. The route connects the San Joaquin Valley to the Mojave Desert. The Native American Kitanemuk people used the pass as a trade route before the American settlement of the region in the 1800s.

The flowers on this card are Blue Lupins and Californian Gold Poppies.

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
