The story behind the image

On your way from Las Vegas to San Francisco you will want to consider a stop in Bishop, one of the biggest towns in the Eastern Sierra. It is nice and tidy and offers you even a public park for recreation. While you are in Bishop why not plan for a side-trip to the Mammoth Lakes? Up there, in the mountains, there are some surprises for you (apart from a breathtaking environment.)

On your way to the lakes, you’ll pass the Hot Creek Geological Site about 40 miles north of Bishop. The creek invites for a bath in natural hot springs (at your own risk.) Who needs to travel to Iceland when you have natural hot springs (almost) right in front of your door?

An awesome sight, and quite unexpected for us.
