Airplane Graveyard in California

Hi. Last time I was driving from Las Vegas towards California's Highway 5, near Bakersfield, I seem to recall seeing a large number of mothballed airplanes off in the distance.

Can someone tell me where that is and whether I can get to tour the place on the weekend? I was planning on driving through on a Saturday or Sunday.

Thanks in advance!

I know of a boneyard in Mojave, CA. Kinda close to Bakersfield,CA.
Is that what your looking for? Google is your friend!
I was there in 2004.

Tours of Main Flightline available, not scrap areas in 2004.
