Carrizo Bloom

I took some good reference photos on my recent journey to the Carrizo Plain. The Carrizo Plain is located west of the town of Taft which is west of Bakersfield. The San Andreas fault runs the length of the eastern side of the Plain and this is one of the best places along the fault to view it since there is very little erosion up there. They get very little rainfall which means erosion damage is almost nil along the fault.

This view is part of the Elkhorn hills in the foreground and in the distance you can see the Temblor mountain range. It's beautiful up on the Plain and clouds so low you feel you are almost on the same level as they glide by.
