Road Trip to Lone Pine and Neighboring Areas--Part Two

You may recall from an earlier post here that we went to Lone Pine, California and surrounding areas for a nostalgia trip.  It was a great trip with nice times and wonderful scenery. 

After we returned from the desert east of Lone Pine, we headed north on Highway 395 to Bishop.  We visited the Mountain Light Gallery, the quilt shop, and Erick Schat's Bakkery.  Then we headed out of town along Bishop Creek.  We knew the road would be closed at some point because of the snow in the mountains.  We went as far as the locked gate across the road and got out and walked around a bit and looked at the snow like the desert dwellers we are.

Not too much picnicking going on.

Then back to Lone Pine in time for sunset.

We ate most of our meals at the Mt. Whitney Restaurant/Cafe.  Have a salad for dinner so you can have a milk shake for dessert!

Then it was time to head back home again.  But . . .not before noticing the industrious bird outside our motel room.  And discovering this home under construction in the hedge just outside our motel room door!

Since this trip was in April, I'm sure that by now the bird family is growing!

Different experiences for us to see snow and then spring bird actitivy in the same day!  Be sure to look OUTSIDE your door!
