Edwards Air Force Base

It’s kind of a shame that when my in-laws come out next month, I won’t have the ability to take them out to the base.  Driving out there today for work reminded me that the landscape is pretty extraordinary.  Some days I can see the beauty in the area and some days I can’t; today was a good day (in part because it had just rained).  Super-old Joshua trees, expansive lake beds, Martian-looking rock escarpments, weird-shaped buildings where science and aviation type stuff happens, and lots of cool-looking old airplanes on sticks.  My father-in-law would enjoy that but we’ll have to make do with civilian-access equivalents elsewhere.
