Today we'll explore the beautiful Tehachapi Valley, an oasis located in the mountains (elevation 4,000 ft.) between the San Joaquin Valley and the Mojave Desert and offering picturesque valley views and a cool haven from the desert heat. While it's a quiet little mountain town now, it once was an old stage depot, cowboy town and has a unique railroad history to boot. Enjoy an included lunch at an authentically charming German bakery and café located in downtown historic Tehachapi. Boasting old-world charm and delicious cuisine, the bakery is known for its fresh-baked bread that is made from scratch on-site daily. Then a local railroad guide will come aboard the motorcoach and lead us to a view of the famous Tehachapi Train Loop. This engineering marvel has been named one of the railroad wonders of the world and is one of the busiest single-track train lines in the world! Enjoy time at leisure to explore the innovative exhibits and memorabilia at the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum. The number of artifacts, models and photographs which were collected by one man during his life's connection with trains is astounding! From the museum's deck we may see trains run across the tracks. Later, we'll visit a local alpaca ranch to meet these adorable yet odd critters and learn how their fiber is spun into yarn. Price: $99 = Depart: GCC 8:30 a.m. = Return: 6:30 p.m.
