Stopped by to see The Old Woman Meteorite. The place was in remodeling construction. The workers were having lunch, so I snuck a peek. They have a nice walking path around building and a view of the valley. plenty of parking.

Great place to take kids to learn about the desert area around Barstow. It also has a walking fitness trail that will take you around the area with stops along the way to work out.
