High Desert Memories - A Hometown Journal Commemorating Ridgecrest California
Kramer Junction so named because it was the junction of several railroad spurs in the early 1900's. It has since become the junction of two Highways 395 and 58 which branch to other major highway arterials. From here you can proceed to San Bertnardino to the south, Ridgecrest and the Eastern Sierra to the north, Barstow to the east and Palmdale and Lancaster to the west. It is also the site of a large solar generating site. Long a landmark for travelers to and from big city to the Sierra playgrounds.
Recognize this area?? It is on highway 395 approaching Atolia and Red Mountain.
This is the stretch of road right outside of Johannesburg heading north toward Inyokern and Ridgecrest
Solar power generation is really all about mirrors but no smoke
. . . . well maybe a little smoke but it certainly must be lucrative look at the size of this place!!!
