Bishop, in Inyo county, prides itself to be the "Mule Capital of the World". It is on US Highway 395, the main North-south road, immediately east of the Sierra Nevada. We drove Highway 395 several times but never visited the city of Bishop. The following tips are on the surroundings of Bishop.

    Mule capital, this sounds funny :-) Maybe they were using the cows as messenger to know when they had to hide?

    Nice page on the Bishop area. I especially like the pictures with the snow. I too have never been to the town of Bishop, but found the nearby area enjoyable.

    Very picturesque surroundings of Bishop with wonderful mountain landscapes and the impressive Mount Humphreys! An amazing ghost town. Thanks Jean-Louis for sharing!

    Hi Jean-Louis, You showed me a part of my country that I've never seen. I've spent a lot time in California but nowhere quite as remote as this. Certainly is a beautiful landscape. Thanks for broadening my horizons...Tom
