    Camp at 11,000' - right at the 'tree line' of the alpine high country, the majestic Eastern Sierra Nevada. Drive there in a 4x4. If you have the patience for this road, you can visit some of the most convenient Sierra back country available to any 4 wheel drive vehicle. This high elevation plateau is just south east of Hwy. 168 which leads up to Lake Sabrina & South Lake.

    The small dirt road from Schober Lane in Bishop leads you behind the power(electricity) station & up a sandy wash which is named Coyote Valley Rd. This road winds its way all the way up a super steep grade (4WD low) & dumps you out on a pinyon pine/juniper ridge. Continue southeast through meadows, eventually coming across aspen lined creeks. Nice places to camp all along this large sloping plain. But in the mid-summer, bring your mosquito repellent.

    And more. Further up you will see ponderosa pines & small lake. At the lake the road spurs off to rough rock & goes even higher. Only, if you so dare. We never saw anyone come back.
