Down the Hill to Bishop


A 2000' drop down to Bishop, CA helped a lot with the temperature. We stayed at Horton Creek BLM campground, another gorgeous spot.


On our first day, we drove to see the local lakes. First up was Lake Sabrina. Sometimes it is totally empty at this time of year, but fortunately it has plenty of water this year.


We walked a little ways along the lake to get some color.


We then went up a dirt road -


To get to North Lake. I think we're about a week late for the best color, but it was still nice.


We then went down to South Lake, where the aspens were also a little past peak.


On our way home, we drove past a nice waterfall.


The next day, we drove a little north of town to see the 3 different ancient petroglyph sites. It was fun to imagine what the pictures depicted.


I see an alien here...


And there were petroglyphs of balloons from an ancient birthday party!


There were also some very unique lava rocks in the area.


We had a great time hunting for the petroglyphs in this beautiful country.
