Desert Airstrip…

This is the remnants of an old airstrip, in the El Paso Mountain Range.  The El Paso’s are located in the Mojave Desert.

Local legend had it that famous test-pilot Chuck Yeager used to land here, when he was stationed at Edwards AFB, in order to go hunting.

Today, the old strip is the domain of off-roaders.

Panoramic Video-El Paso Mountains…

This was a nice, slow flight over the interior of the El Paso Mountain Range, which is located in California’s Mojave Desert, approximately thirty miles south of the city of Inyokern.  Looming in the background is Black Mountain, which has some interesting lore associated with it.

It is thought that Native Americans used the top of the mountain as a site for their ceremonies and trading activities.  According to local legend, miners who were prospecting and living in the area during the late nineteenth century, reported seeing strange lights at the top of the mountain at night.
