EDWARDS AFB & ROSAMOND
Edwards AFB and Rosamond are located just north of the LA/Kern County line.
Make sure to schedule (in advance!) a tour of the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards for an up close look at the aircraft on display and a history of Edwards AFB and the Antelope Valley.
Rosamond is home to "The Cat House" - offering a one of a kind look at many endangered felines.
With 7 miles of trails (including a paved wheelchair accesible one), the Poppy Reserves offers stunning views of the AV, poppies, and a large variety of wildflowers.
You can also see photos and wildflower updates on their Facebook page.
