Hi, and welcome to JA!

There are about 25 million acres of desert in California. That's about a quarter of CA's total area!

Reply to Scott's Post: Dear XXXXX, I need to fine tune this answer. Of the barren unusable California desert how much is flat and barren and how much is mountainous?

That's a much tougher question.

The Mojave, which is typically mountainous, is 22000 square miles (14+ million acres) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mojave_Desert

The Colorado desert (in California) is 2500 sq miles (1.6 million acres), and it is mostly flat.

If you'd like, I can opt out and have someone else take a look at this.
