ridgecrest, California

elevation: 2289'
population: 29,000
zip code: 93555

High desert region with views of the majestic Southern Sierras. It's not about the city of Ridgecrest, where you can get a new tire or oil change when needed, but all the great landscape that is located around it. Within an hours drive you can be in pine filled mountains of the Sierra Nevada, high sierra sage meadows, examine joshua trees up close, find an old mine & explore desert back roads everywhere. Or you can head into the lunar-scapes of Panamint Valley, Trona Pinnacles or even the depths of Death Valley National Park.
