Tehachapi Mountains

Tehachapi Mountain Range, Antelope Valley
As you walk to the next point of interest take a look at the mountains to the north or to the left of the path. These are the Tehachapi Mountains rising to an elevation of 7980 ft. They are actually the southern end of the Sierra Nevada range and separate the San Joaquin Valley from the Antelope Valley. One of the original spellings of the name was tehichipi, presumably a Native American word or at least the way settlers spelled it, but the Southern Pacific Railroad changed the name to its present spelling. Also, look for dead juniper in stark contrast to the living trees.
