No, but that's in the general direction. Think train.

I don't know where it is, but I think it a railroad loop. It is a way to gain altitude in a confined space. If that is what it is, it is not the only one in the US. There is one in Georgetown, CO. If that's not what it is then never mind..

Yes, it is the Tehachapi Loop in California, and I read it was the only one in the US. It's close to Hwy 58 between Bakersfield and Mojave, California.

Just Googled the Georgetown Loop, and found out it's a narrow gauge railroad used only for tourism at this time.

"The Tehachapi Loop is a 0.73-mile (1.17 km) long 'spiral', or helix, on the Union Pacific Railroad line through Tehachapi Pass, of the Tehachapi Mountains in Kern County, south-central California. The line connects Bakersfield and the San Joaquin Valley to Mojave in the Mojave Desert. Seeing a daily average of almost 40 trains, the line is one of the busiest single-track mainlines in the world."

Where Is This?

Hi Steve,
Good time...thanks for the road trip & side trip. Are you camping in the area? Drove through Mohave several years ago & was somewhat eerie as the last 12-14 hr. day of three day trip east to west. We had no time for side trips as we were moving daughter to CA for her new career right out of college. Need to spend more time out westNeed to redo and enjoy the journey next time.

No, we were out that way in June, and I had heard about the loop and wanted to stop and see it since I am sort of a train buff. The road that will get you to the place where I took the picture is one that I would not recommend taking a trailer on, especially a large trailer. However, it's one of those deals where once you get started, you must continue on because there is no place to turn around, at all. Here's us parked on the side of that road at the overview area.

Sorry to confuse you Jim. That was just the file name Heather had for that series of photos.
We were going from BC to Ontario, via the US #90 that trip and yes that is the rest stop in Chamerlain. (Post @ 1395) You have a good eye and much travel experience Jim.
