|Two Ostrich - Tehachapi, California|
One is not likely to stumble across the Indian Point Ostrich Ranch by accident. It is tucked away in a little corner of the Tehachapi Mountains at the edge of nowhere. There are signs from the town of Tehachapi to guide the way, and it's not difficult to find if you are looking for it. The Boss Hog Ranch and the United Pegasus Foundation are nearby, both of which I recently posted about.

There is an "ostrich bonding experience" that you may partake in where you can feed the large birds. The ostriches are friendly but hungry--in fact, one tried to eat my camera, but got my finger instead. It didn't hurt. This will add another five minutes to your trip.

If you have kids, after the tour is complete, I recommend purchasing some beverages from the gift shop. Let the kids play on the playground while you relax at a bench under the shade of an umbrella sipping something cold. The playground has a couple slides, some swings and various other playground things--plenty to keep the little ones busy.
