Why come to Bishop? Well, I've heard some people say they just have to move to Bishop. Everybody else I've talked to hardly knows where it is. Bishop is a small, quaint town, but don't think for a second that this area doesn't provide its fair share of thrills. Good for a small budget, Bishop provides plenty of free camping. You may have some neighbors but you'll be part of the community as soon as you arrive. Treat the area with respect and it will do the same. Summer is hot and winter is cold, but there is still a place to go when you need shade or sun.

The best of Bishop is not obvious. The locals will be able to show you the way. Wilsons Sport whatever is on main street and anywhone there should be able to answer your questions. Take a quick peak at the guidebooks and drive up to the foothills and get comfortable. I think the road is 152 to South Lake or something. Take a right on peabody and drive slow unless you want permanent damage to your ride. If you feel like it, throw yourself at one of the many boulders. I've heard one crag is known for poisonous snakes but its not somewhere you would just stumble upon.

Expect spectacular sunrises and frost in the morning. Then lose yourself in one of the areas awesome treasures. Enjoy!
