Episode 86 Vasquez Rocks and the Musical Road

February 3, 2012

LISTEN

Vasquez Rocks

In this episode I headed out to Agua Dulce California and explored the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area before taking an unusual drive down a Magical Musical road.

You’ve probably never heard of the Vasquez Rocks before but I guarentee you’ve seen them.  Used as a backdrop for many television shows commercials and feature films, the jagged up-tilted rocks resemble the great desert sougthwest or alien planet landscapes.

At the end of the episode we head out to Lancaster California to take a drive down the musical road, modeled after one used in a Honda television commercial and rebuilt just a few miles away on Avenue “G”.  We also stop by a unique side-of-the-road road attraction called Charlie Brown Farms.

    Vasquez Rocks is one of my favorite riding spots. Here is a link to Everytrail.com that shows the track and photos from one of my trips: http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=110427&code=0d0705ec9ddbb048ec2c14b95abd8b72
    About mid trip, you will see a couple of photos showing a head on the hillside that I think I’m the only one who has noticed it or at least commented about. Also, “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey” has several scenes that were shot at VR.
