... your own trays, the food was delicious (I had a pulled pork sandwich and Trev had tri-tips, and then we ordered more tri-tips with corn bread to share!). It was brilliant to try an authentic non chain restaurant, I definitely want to try more (though I'm not sure I'm gonna fit into my clothes soon!!!). Going out for a wander in Bishop in a while before heading to bed ...

I thought it was a great idea since there are no bears in this area. So we just put down a small tarp and put down out sleeping pads and sleeping bags.

We got into bed just in time before it got dark (around 7:15pm or 7:30pm). We had planned on just looking at the stars a while. Around 8:00pm, we ...

... only a little relief. It definitely made us appreciate having good air conditioning, although at times you have to turn it off to stop the car engine over heating. We were very very glad to have experienced this strangely beautiful desolate place but were also relieved to get out the other end back into more habitable terrain.
