people who pass through this town traveling along Hwy.395, never
stop & really visit Bishop.
This area offers a lot more than gas & food if you take the
time to look. Located in a valley that is bordered by the Sierra
Nevada Mountain Range to the west & Inyo National Forest to
the east. Plenty of hiking, lakes & pine forest to be explored.
Or just feeding ducks in the city park, snacking on pastries at
Schatt's Bakery, walking through quaint country neighborhoods
& just relaxing. Even though this areas elevation is higher
than 4,000', it's high desert characteristics provide very little
trees on the valley floor. It has a country feel with huge mountains
looming on both sides.
