There is an area in Kern County named Wind Wolves Preserve. The name is derived from the long grasses. The inhabitants include elk, bear, mountain lion and condors among others. You can drive in a couple of miles and then it's foot or bicycle from that point on. If the weather has cooperated, there are wildflowers.
