On Tuesday we took a break from playing tourist. John and Dave enjoyed a round of golf at Bishop Golf Course, a nice eighteen hole layout just south of town surrounded by the mountains. Pam caddied for John while Sue drove a cart for Dave.
The next day we drove west of Bishop to check out some rock formations along Buttermilk Road.
When we parked the Jeep to explore the rocks, we noticed a number of people carrying large mattresses on their backs. We soon found that they were going to boulder and the mats were just a little “insurance” if they fell.
As we left the area we noticed the climber pictured below. She seemed frozen on the rock so we stopped to watch.
Route 6 is a U.S. highway that begins (or ends) in Bishop and goes all the way across the country. We headed east to visit Provincetown but changed our plans when we found how far away it was.
Instead of visiting Provincetown we turned east to check out another area of interesting boulders.
As we took the picture below of the rocks and the horizon, a climber suddenly appeared out of the rocks.
It has been a bit rainy here in Bishop, but they desperately need the rain so we don’t complain. Tomorrow’s our last day here and it is suppose to be sunny, so we may have one more hike in us before we move south.
More on that later . . .
