Overnight in Bishop

2018 West, California, Road Trip

Since we’re staying in a prime location in downtown Bishop, California, at J Diamond Mobile Ranch Camp, we opted to take the opportunity to have our tow vehicle inspected by a mechanic. The local Ford dealer was backed up at least a week but our campground Hosts suggested Mr K Automotive on Grove Avenue. We dropped it off just minutes after 8 AM and agreed to leave it all day, walked across the street to Jack’s and while eating breakfast and discussing what we might do with an unplanned day in Bishop, we got a call. Not only had they completed 40 Point Inspection, they offered to charge it to AAA, as one of the member benefits that we hadn’t known we were entitled to on an annual basis! With that we headed back to the campground, prepared for departure, enjoyed conversation neighbors, hobnobbed with one of the hosts then headed south toward Lone Pine.

    I hope you stopped @The Cowboy/Movie museum, for a trip down memory lane. More Westerns used Lone Pine as the location for more Westerns than any other place, because of the majestic mountains in the background.
