Short Canyon Spring 2019

Inyokern isn’t just dust and sand. Every spring we have a fabulous superbloom of wildflowers. You don’t have to go far to see it! Below is a collection of photos I, Evan Carroll, took 3 separate days in the Spring of 2019.

Maturango Museum is having a wildflower exhibit Friday, April 5th to Sunday April 7th 2019. Admission is $2, children are free. They will have Nick Jensen speaking Saturday, April 6 at 2 pm, on “A Botanist comes full circle: from studying to defending Tejon Ranch, California’s largest private landholding.”

American Pickers to Film in California

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to California! They plan to film episodes of the hit series American Pickers throughout your area in March 2019.

AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of
the day looking through, send us your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: or call 855-OLD-RUST.
