... got stung! Bishop itself is a lovely town but boy was it hot when we got out the van at 6pm - it dwarfed any of the highest temperatures we were having back home when I left! I also saw my first shooting star (with a tail and everything!) whilst laying on the desert ground next to the natural hot springs - it was a beautiful experience.

... for when we came back later to camp.
The campground is called Grandview Campground and there is no water there, and only vault toilets. Reservations aren't taken. We assumed there would be a spot for us when we finished our hike at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. So we just went on without setting anything up first at an open campsite.
