I took the long winding road to crest a mountain near Bakersfield, California. The elevation isn't a lot, something like 7,548 ft (2,301 m), but, that's enough to get into some pines and cooler air. The drive was short; maybe 30 miles. Traffic was very light. I don't think this mountain sees the visitors that others in the area do. Except when it's tree squirrel hunting season. Then, there are people and guns all over the place. Evidently, squirrel is pretty tasty to some folks.
