Wasco, CA with required travel to job sites in the region.

Wasco, CA is just north of Bakersfield, which is nestled in the southern Central Valley of California two hours north of Los Angeles. A city population of approximately 400,000, Bakersfield is one of the fastest growing medium-sized cities in the United States. Bakersfield is a dynamic and diverse community with rich assets in agriculture, energy, medicine, arts, culture, education and professional services.

Bakersfield has hundreds of miles of bike paths and lanes and nearly 60 parks, offering locals plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Plus, residents are a short drive from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and some of California's expansive national forests and SoCal and Central Cal coasts are easy and splendid day trips from Bakersfield.

For the outdoor enthusiasts, Kern River and Lake Isabella areas offer white water rafting, fishing, windsurfing, water skiing, hiking, bird watching and hunting. The Wild and Scenic Kern River springs from the high Sierra Nevada mountains near Mount Whitney and flows southwest through the Sequoia National Forest toward Bakersfield, California. The Kern River offers many types of rafting experiences depending on the time of year and the challenges/relaxation desired. The Forks of the Kern, the Upper Kern River, and the Thunder Run stretches are early to mid-season trips depending on the spring snow melt and can provide class IV and class V challenges for more experienced white water rafters. The Upper Kern one day trip offers almost 20 miles of Class III and IV white water to choose from and is our primary early season trip offering, while our Lower Kern river trips offer nearly 18 miles of white water later in the summer.  Lake Isabella is at the confluence of the North and South Forks of the Kern River.
