easy location for Botta Pocket Gopher

Interstate 5 is the usual north / south connector from San Francisco to L.A.

About an hour and a half N of L.A. (45 minutes from Bakersfield), the Lebec Rest Area on the east (northbound) side has had Botta’s Pocket Gophers three out of three stops this summer. I would assume Fort Tejon State Park (3 miles away) would be good too, but at the rest area they’re mildly habituated to foot traffic.

Other than that, nothing else is there (other than American Crows, Brewer’s Blackbirds, and English Sparrows).

I cannot guarantee they’ll be there when you want to visit (!), but I know I have had them there at least one previous summer.
