  • A wonderful, remote National Monument that shows what 'Old Califirnia' was like a century+ ago. I arrived in late afternoon, camped at the KCL HQ campgrounds, and left about noon the next day...

  • The Carrizzo Plain is probably the most isolated location in Southern California. Here you can see, in spring miles of flowers in bloom surrounded by colourful terrain. Also remnants of pioneers...

  • Stunningly beautiful views! Very fun hikes, suitable for all ages. The visitor's center was small, but had a lot of interesting displays and information, and the employees were very friendly. I recommend coming early & plan on exploring all day long.
  • April 2022. Even without super bloom the Monument is worth visiting. There are still many things to enjoy: the spectacular landscapes, the stunning blue sky, the breathtaking views, and the heavenly silence! Four wheel drive SUVs would be much better. Make sure the fuel tank is full. And be ready for car wash immediately after.
