Lone Pine & Bishop, CA
October 11-14, 2014
We spent Columbus Day Weekend camping at Tuttle Creek Campground near Lone
Pine, CA - what a beautiful spot this time of year! We went to the Lone Pine Film
Festival Parade, the little park in town, and took a drive up to Bishop.
Tuttle Creek campground is only $5/night and features a beautiful little creek and
amazing views of some of the highest Sierra peaks. We had fun exploring near Lone
Pine as well which was celebrating the 25th Lone Pine Film Festival – a whole lot of
notable Westerns were filmed here.

|We took a drive up to South Lake then went on a short hike - this is
where I began my Dusy Basin Hike
|We lived in a small rural neighborhood along the South Fork Bishop Creek when I was
born. The elevation is 8,400′ and the views are spectacular as it’s very close to the
John Muir Wilderness. This place is very special to me and my family – all parts of
who we are can be traced to the love of the Eastern Sierra and it’s showcased here. I
had fun sharing it with our son as we picnicked and hiked alongside the creek.
