lodginglodging reservations in Tehachapi

At the southern end of the Sierra Nevada mountain range & next to the Mojave Desert, this region is considerably dryer than the rest of the Sierra's. Rocks & soils found on Point Reyes in San Francisco match exactly with those found in this Tehachapi region. Just goes to show you, the earth moves in California.
