Kernvilee, CA– another town where lack of water has impacted the economy. This is a major rafting center and the water level was last high enough to raft in 2009. YIKES!! Lake Isabella has trees showing in the middle. We rode Just Outstanding and then continued down Wagy Ridge. JO was great but Wagy Ridge– well, that’s another story. We already learned about riding cattle trails, now we experienced riding down steep sandy trails where motos are allowed. Most of it was an unrideable trench where your pedals dragged on the inside of the rut. Nice views. Wild rock formations and giant pine cones.
