One of the more interesting aspects of flying is reading an aviation chart. Even though paper maps are fast becoming archaic, soon to be found only in time-capsules, the apps on our iPads still need to be interpreted and understood. Along with topographical designations and airport symbols and relevant elevation markings, there are boundaries that represent where and how high you can fly.

Middle Knob provides spectacular, rugged and colorful landforms, and dramatic viewsheds. It is a key ecological area which supports unusual plant associations not found elsewhere, including one of California's rarest species: Kern buckwheat. Unusual associations occur throughout the area, combining species from coastal scrub, southern mountain chaparral, Sierran foothill woodlands, Great Basin pinyon forests, and Mojavean scrub.
