There were actually at least two test firings that I saw when I was about 9 years old from a couple of those sites in the mid-60's, it was quite a big deal at the time. Now they microwave, cellular etc antenna sites
I have been doing much research into this recently. The base you speak of is the LA-88 site at Oat Mountain. It is up Browns Canyon Road which is what De Soto turns into. It was in fact a Nike Ajax site and then later converted into a Nike Hercules site. (Most Hercules missiles carried a nuclear warhead)

I went wheeling on privat property that I had permision to be on about two weeks ago and came across womens clothing hanging on a bush by the adjacent railroad tracks. There was a pair of shorts, top, bra, panties, socks.

I was back there for the first time, by myself, and got kind of freeked out like I may stumble on something I was not ready for. Should this type of thing be reported???

Went muddin years ago in a half track out in the Everglades. We were miles from any road and we came across a guy sleepin in a hammock strung up on the only two scrub pines in the area. Mud was about 2-4 feet deep all around. Dude didn't speak any english, so we left him alone.

While out wheeling in my local area we came across an old boy scout camp. Total it consisted of about 8 dilapidated buildings. Some have bullet holes, others are missing parts of the structure.
