It’s been a whirlwind of a week here in the little mountain town of Bishop, Calif. For those who don’t know this place it’s actually the largest populated city in Inyo County and also a hub of sorts on 395. It sits at the crossroads of Hwy 395 and US 6 which was, interestingly enough, one of the original east-west interstate highways in the US.
It’s an incredibly scenic spot, and we’ve been here many times before, but what makes it unique are the “extras”. Bishop is known as a climbers paradise, and the combo of hungry climbing crowds and steady influx of younger/hip types has morphed it into one of the top “foodie” destinations on 395. There are over 40 different restaurants in Bishop including a brewery, 3 bakeries, 3 coffee shops, 5 Mexican, a Thai, an Indian and no end of good old-fashioned American. We come to Bishop to hike, play and eeeeeeeeat and there’s no better place on 395 to do all three.
