September Roundup or “Where has the Time Gone?”

We’ll be leaving Bishop mid-October and we’re trying to get in as many activities as we can because we may not be back here for a while. Well, probably next year if we do our West Coast Trip. We’ll see.

Jan takes the Activities Award for September . . .

YOSEMITE FISHING TRIPS

Bishop to Tuolumne Meadows (click map to enlarge)

Jan has taken a couple of fishing trips with her new friend Audrey to the streams in Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite. This meant getting up at 5:30 am.

CONVICT LAKE HIKE

Jan again. She and friend Audrey did a 3-mile hike around Convict Lake which is about an hour North of Bishop. As you’ll see in one of the photos below, the Fall colors have started in September in the mountains.

OUR FAVORITE DESSERT SPOT

Good Earth Yogurt

 

Basically, you fill a large cup with different flavors of Yogurt, add a bunch of toppings, and then you pay by how heavy it is. Great stuff.
