Props to Tehachapi Life Photography for braving the trek out to get the pictures of this. For those not in the know, there was a storm over last weekend that resulted in some horrendous mudslides, closing California State Highway 58, the shortest route that connects the California/Arizona/Nevada high desert area (Las Vegas, Kingman, Laughlin, Barstow) to the Central California agricultural region (Bakersfield, Fresno, Visalia, Modesto). This would mean that anyone driving to the Northern California area would need to drive up to Reno, NV, or through the northern section of the Los Angeles area then drive up; either way is long. But those mudslides were crazy.

Anyone good with a shovel? BL.
