We left Bakersfield on Tuesday, heading south on Interstate I- 5. On that busy eight- lane highway we had one mountain range to chug over. Our rig does not do well climbing mountains and quite often we ended up behind large trucks in the slow lane. But that was all right because it gave us more time to enjoy the mountain vistas, as the one pictured below. It is Pyramid Lake in the Angeles and Los Padres National Forest.
