Wind Wolves Preserve, Kern County, California

Wind Wolves Preserve, Kern County, California

The Wind Wolves Preserve is a beautiful tract of land owned by the Wildlands Conservancy. The entrance area resembles a landscape from Montana with the large fields of wildflowers leading up to the green foothills. Then up here in the canyon I heard loud croaking sounds from what sounded like hundreds of toads in the creek. This is a really beautiful place that caught me by surprise! I had never heard of it before briefly reading about it online before I left the house.

This photo will eventually be placed on a revamped version of my Central California pictures gallery.

  1. Yeah it is a really awesome place Mark. I think the name Wind Wolves refers to the weather more than the wildlife though on the brochure there is a huge elk on the cover. Too bad I didn’t see one while there.

  2. Hi Ram. Yeah you can drive up until the mouth of the canyon. The majority of where the flowers are are near the entrance though the nicest scenery is in the canyon in my opinion.

  3. I love your nature photography but would also like to see more “twilight” photos like in the past. Your photos at dusk of street scenes were phenomenal.

  4. I had an internship there last summer. Windwolves undergoes a massive transformation between March and June. That lovely picture is something you would see at Windwolves only for a few weeks, then everything dries out and turns a shade of golden yellow. Temperatures last summer peaked at around 118 with little breeze for most of the day. Still, it’s one of the best places I can think of to see California-native wildflowers when they’re in bloom. The Elk are incredible! I got a chance to see the largest herd spotted on the preserve (111 heads!!!) and it’s an amazing sight. Home to quite a great deal of diverse flora and fauna. Another cool place is the small Bitter Creek Preserve just South of Windwolves.
